If you've ever heard a rain stick, it sounds/feels (I'm not sure which, really) like that, in the back of my throat/head, but only when I'm very hungry and haven't eaten all day. It seems to be triggered by opening my mouth slightly, but perhaps not always?
Is this tied in some way to blood sugar? What is the nature of the sensation?
This has been the case for as long as I can remember. I'm 21, male, and in decent enough health. It doesn't hurt or anything, but it's a curious sensation, like the fizzing of soda, but more pointed.
Anyone else with this experience know what I'm talking about?
