Our bodies are just weird. Sometimes we hear some frecking noise from our body and you’ll think it’s one major issues we are suffering or kind of walking issues down the line. Turns out, there are plenty of noises your body makes that can for no reason.
See some weird noise from your body that’s normal
A rumbling stomach
The one happens so often that you probably don’t even think of a growling stomach as weird—unless it’s really loud. But even if your tummy rumbles are nearly deafening, there’s probably nothing to worry about. That’s because your stomach always grumbles louder in stressful situations: Stress causes your stomach muscles to contract, making your stomach growl, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America.
There’s absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about. What some people think of as “vagina farts” is just a natural thing that sometimes happens when you’re doing the deed. Repeatedly pushing a penis or toy in and out of your vagina creates plenty of opportunity for air to get trapped inside. And once air is in there, it needs to come out. Though it might not sound pleasant, queefing is always normal.
A gurgle in your throat
It always happens at the wrong moment, can be embarrassing, like when you open your mouth to say something in a quiet room and this weird sound comes out like there’s a frog just waiting to jump out. It could be that you did probably just eat something too fast. Just like a burp, throat gurgles let out excess air from your stomach. When you eat too fast, chew gum, or drink something carbonated, there’s a good chance you’re swallowing air. That air comes back up as a burp or a gurgle.
Popping or crackling knees
Sometimes your knees snap, crackle, and pop when you bend down. That doesn’t mean you need to rush to a doctor, or even that you’ll have knee problems as you age. In fact, it probably means that nothing is wrong with you at all. Scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology recently used a new acoustic device to listen in on both healthy and injured knees as they bent. What they found is that even the healthy knees made cacophonous popping and cracking sounds.
A whistle in your nose
Sometimes you’ll hear a high-pitched whistle from your nose, which probably means that you’re congested and blowing your nose will clear it up. When a lot of air is forced through a little hole, that’s what makes a whistle.
There are, however, some times when it can indicate a more serious problem like a deviated septum or a hole in your septum. So if your nose whistles consistently, then you might want to head to an ear, nose, and throat specialist.
Still, these weird noises should only be an every once in a while thing. If you’re constantly experiencing it, check in with a doctor to make sure you don’t have a more serious problem.
