I have trouble falling asleep, is Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) a solution?

Question: I have trouble falling asleep and suffer from anxiety, is Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) a solution? I heard that ASMR is used by people to help with anxiety and sleep problems. I really don’t know if Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response is a fad or just fake. Should I try it?

Answer: Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) is an experience which is not well documented nor has been studied in depth by the medical field. ASMR is basically a sensory experience felt by some people – not all people – when watching a specially designed video which elicits a calming “tingling” sensation localized to the scalp and neck – this works for some people only. It is said that it does help with anxiety and sleep disorders because it creates a meditation like effect. Should you try it? I don’t think it can hurt, so why not. You can search on YouTube for these kind of videos….have fun!

Thanks for your question.

I have been experiencing very shallow breathing, shivers, legs feel numb?

Hi! I am a 20 year old female. Lately I have been experiencing very shallow breathing. Additionally, my face starts to shiver, my eyes twitch uncontrollably, my hands tremor, my legs feel numb, my lip pulls to a certain side and I have difficulty speaking. I have been feeling very dizzy lately and I also experience extreme vertigo sometimes.

I have been to a doctor during last week. She just took one look at me and said that I am stressed out, which makes no sense at all! I am not stressed, panicked, nervous or anxious whatsoever. I am a very chilled and relaxed person, plus, I am currently on holiday. So I literally have nothing to stress or worry about.
