It won’t go away, but sometimes you get it, for instance, with whispers, and some others, you won’t, why, I can’t say. I get my fix of asmr on youtube and sometimes I have to stop watching the same asmrtist because they stop giving me tingles. After a while I come back and there they are, tingles again.
No, it has been with me since I was young. My earliest memory of asmr was watching Frosty the Snowman in first grade, I kept rewinding the ending when Santa explained how he could come back alive again. At the time I had no idea why I watched that part repetatively. I’m in my thirties now and it is still relative to my daily life.
It can temporarily if overstimulated. If I watch too many ASMR videos too often, it might become more difficult to get the tingles. It is like the sensation dulls. In order to fix this, I just stop watching ASMR videos for a few days or maybe a week, and the tingle sensation returns.
I don’t think it can. I’ve had it my entire life.
I surely hope not! If one finds that they’re not being triggered perhaps exploring and researching other triggers to find a new one. I would imagine you could get “burned out” if you use the same trigger over and over again.
I’m afraid mine has gone away. I was definitely overstimulated, it was torture. What can I do to heal? Is there anything?
