Our bodies can be awkward sometimes, especially with unexpected jolts, jerks, sounds, etc. The spontaneous sounds your body makes can be even weirder and we have listed and explained some of them:
Your stomach rumbling
You know if you haven’t eaten, that rumbling noise is your stomach telling you it’s time to fill your stomach with some healthy food. That’s just the sound of air and fluid moving through the digestive tract. But if you experience high-pitched noises along with cramping, pain and nausea, you should get it checked out.
Your nose is whistling
What’s more embarrassing than a high-pitched whistle every time you breathe? Don’t worry too much about it. It’s just a sign of an airflow obstruction that’s usually excess mucous. If you have a cold, try a decongestant, and if it’s caused by allergies, opt for an antihistamine to get rid of the sound.
Your ears are ringing
It’s something nearly everyone has experienced at one point or another, and it can be caused by a number of things. Infection, very loud noise and ageing can cause your cochlea to send signals to your brain even when there’s no actual sound. If the ringing lasts more than a couple of days and is accompanied by a painful sensation, see a doctor to make sure everything is still okay.
Belching is the sound of air escaping your stomach. You can reduce burps by eating slowly with closed mouth and skipping carbonated drinks. Burps accompanied by a burning pain the chest may indicate gastroesophageal reflux disease.
You’ve got a case of hiccups
Hiccups are the result of your diaphragm contracting involuntarily, causing the top of your windpipe to close suddenly. The exact cause of this annoying phenomenon is still unclear because they don’t actually have any purpose.
A number of things such as a virus or bright lights may trigger a reflex reaction that runs from your brain to the diaphragm, thus stimulating a sneeze. However, some people make a loud noise when they sneeze. The loudness depends on the volume of the lungs, the size of the trachea or strength of the abs. Chronic sneezing may be a sign of an allergy.
