What are the situations that give you goosebumps?
Goosebumps are created in the body when the hair on the skin raises or stands straight up causing bumps on the skin as a reaction to certain situations like cold, fear, shock and sometimes due to a sense of nostalgia or something awe-inspiring.
Goosebumps are a mechanical muscle contraction that occurs as a result of the release of a stress hormone in the body. Adrenalin rushes through veins, there is an increased heartbeat, trembling in the hands, tingling in the stomach and sweat forms in palms all as a part of one feeling. Goosebumps occur at the nape of the neck and also on the arms.
