  1. Yes it can go away and it can go away forever. I am proof of that. As a child I had this. I had it all the way up through my teenage years. I just didn’t know what it was called. One day I stumbles upon a YouTube video in my late 30s and found out it’s called ASMR. At that time I realized that it had gone away and I hadn’t experienced it for a long time. I formerly had a drug and alcohol problem for a long time so I’m assuming that I changed my brain chemistry and lost it through that

    I haven’t experienced either (in my opinion), but I won’t always experience ASMR, even if I like the trigger; and triggers won’t be as effective if I over-watch them for a long period of time.

    How long did it take to return if it came back?
    How often were you experiencing ASMR when it went away?
    N/A

    Do you think there was anything else that contributed to your ASMR going away besides frequency of ASMR? (like medications, drugs, diet, stress, etc)
    No.

    Not over-watching certain trigger(s), and taking a break once I realize I have been over-watching.
