What are goosebumps? 

I have been having it for the third day usually only on the right side of my body particularly the right arm. 

When I was growing up they say if you have goosebumps, there are spirits around you. But I am sure there is a physical explanation I yet need to research on.

I hope your day is going well and do not forget to enjoy each breathing moment.

    • I checked the site, so it is just a question? I did not find any answer yet or similar condition. Mine does not hurt. But once I find out something, I will definitely share to you. Thank you!!!!

  2. I was told as a child, along with the “spirits”, (I think many cultures have that myth…), that they were our body’s reaction to a quick temperature change, internally… It’s why they occur so often in cold weather… Perhaps you’re sleeping in a room that’s cold? Don’t know, but, it has always seemed a logical explanation, that we get them when we feel cold, and our body is changing internally to adjust; they are the physical sign of what is happening inside…

    It may be an urban myth, as I never checked it out, because it made sense… Some people report getting them when scared, which is where the phrase, ‘getting chills’ comes from, I think…

    I’ve never heard of them being a sign of anything serious, other than serious fright…

  3. It’s one of those conditions that come and go and for which there is hardly any satisfactory medical explanation. It could be due to the weather or stress or a combination of them or even to an allergy. I wouldn’t worry too much about it. As for the spirits being around you I doubt. Nobody has ever proved the existence of spirits and as a rule superstitious people see spirits in everything.
