Think I have ASMR. Get tingly feeling in arms, legs, head when rubbed, massaged, Can ASMR produce/stimulate extra GH & cause 40 YO to grow in height?
ASMR controversial: 1st of all, the ASMR phenomenon (Autonomic Sensory Meridian Response) is debated as to whether or not it exists. It was described in 2007 in the context of a finger tracing the head, but mostly it is thought of as a relaxation response to certain AUDIOVISUAL stimulation (not touch). Secondly, if ASMR exists, it's very poorly studied, so no claim regarding growth hormone (GH) or height is possible. ...Read more
Can jumping and landing on heels/straight leg cause a concussion from vibrations? Or running and then slamming heel to stop abruptly (head whiplash)?
Technically yes BUT: Just because something is possible doesn't mean probable! Certainly if someone jumped from a high enough distance, the landing force could cause injury, but a lot of parachutists who land at 20 to 30 miles per hour do just fine, without injury. Acrobats do leaps and twists without injury. So, typically in normal running and jumping, the body can accommodate and protect us. ...Read more

They can tell you what is available. The hair pulling thing might actually be trickier. ...Read more

Age,vein,artery,diab: As we age leg hair seems to become more sparse with thinner shafts.
