Sloshing liquid

Has this ever happened to you?

You are walking and you hear and feel liquid sloshing around in your chest or some other part of your body.

What is going on when that happens? I have always wondered this.

Perhaps what you are hearing is something other than sloshing. Only your stomach has enough open space for a liquid to slosh around and I don't think you'd hear it.

Are you hearing this externally or internally?

I am not actually sure where I hear it Andy. Internally I think, but I can't be sure. I also feel it. This past time I felt it up on my left side right around the middle of my ribcage or maybe even a little higher.

On some hot summer day after guzzling down some ice cold drinks, my stomach often sloshes around loudly, but never in any other body parts... do you feel any discomfort?

Can you induce it at will by swaying back and forth? Another thought is that it could be an inner ear issue.

Nope, no discomfort. It feels kind of neat actually.

OK I always thought this was something that happened to everybody. Now I am getting a little concerned.

This has happened to me for as long as I can remember.

It pretty much only happens when I am walking Andy, but I bet if I swayed enough then that could cause it as well.

I doubt it has anything to do with my inner year. It is something I physically feel in my trunk.

If it has been this way all your life and you never felt any pain or discomfort, I don't think it is anything to worry about, but it is just an amateurish analysis... it may be worth consulting with a physician, if it is for simply satisfying your curiosity.

That is interesting, I have never heard of that. What other parts do you feel liquid in besides your chest?

I often ask my doctor questions about stuff going on in my body that are not complaints so much as curiosity. It might be worth bringing it up next visit.
