Uncomfortable feeling, anyone else?

Now that you know you can dose and survive the experience you can un-tighten your sphincter and relax into the experience knowing nothing bad is going to happen.
It's supposed to be fun, yo!

Bingo! At least in my case, be it L or booms, the first sensation I always experience is from a histamine reaction I've always gotten while tripping. I feel my sinuses filling up, nose gets very stuffy, and I've also experienced ear-popping or clicking, not unlike what you'd get driving down a mountain from a higher altitude. If my histamine reaction comes on fast and strong, I learned to buckle up and hang on for the ride!
The pressure in your ears may be caused by your eustachian tubes, either closing or being clogged. Maybe the cubes give you some histamine response and they fill with mucus? Ever get cold symptoms on shrooms? Just guessing and speculating but something to think about.
One of mine closed one night while I was sleeping, I had a bad head cold, woke up to my ear drum breaking. Pretty uncomfortable(I was crying in pain); stuff leaking out of my ear for 3-4 days.
Aside from that, I have lots of audibles while tripping, but mostly a harmonious high-pitched ringing, but not like usual ringing.

Thanks for the replies fellas, I think you're correct about the "impending doom" feeling - initially I thought the intensity was going to become quite extreme and started to have doubts as to what I'd done. Then I guess I entered thought loops of wanting the experience to end and to fight because something didn't feel right. I considered purging but realized there was no point as I'd already absorbed.
Pretty much describes a recent experience I've had. Not really scary or anything but just uncomfortable and It wasn't enjoyable just had to ride it out.

Never had the buzzing, popping or snapping sounds myself but I did have a pretty awesome experience one time. I must've took about 6 dry grams and had the most visual trip of my life.. snake-like movements on the carpet, faces in the clouds (and everywhere), a giant blue lattice type structure for a few mins in the top corner of the room... And Music in my head. Weird music ulike anything i've heard again. If I were to try and humm it it would go like "boo-beee-booow... boo-bee-booo-beee-boooooo" Rubbish explanation I know but I loved how it was playing inside my head :D

I too have had this fluttering in my ears with psilly... but only on the come-up or when I have only taken a small amount, at 1.7g i would almost expect it, going a little bit beyond the 1.7 - into the 3g range makes it completely go away ...
But I know exactly what your talking about - and it is annoying as fuck ...especially when people are talking to you ...and their voice wobbles with the fluttering ...for me it feels physical and not at all like a auditory hallucination, but maybe that's just a trick of the mind.
I guess it all depends on your goal - I'm not one for threshold doses - I prefer to break through or not participate...

Sadly this has always been my experience with psilocybin. Nothing's changed over the years :(

I've had plenty of, 'not fun'. In fact, if my experiences had an overarching theme, it may be this (anyone who pays attention to my posts is probably not surprised by this )
I think it's wise to go in with caution and reservation. To loosely quote McKenna (whom I don't always find useful), 'Being afraid is how you know it's a real experience'.

Had a bad trip once and heard a high pitched buzz, since then I've heard that high pitched buzz on two trips and I've had to seriously distract myself so I didn't start freaking out. never heard the snapping noise you mentioned, but persistent auditory hallucinations yes. On a side note Shpongle..... I'm cautious about. Sometime that music takes a trip on some crazy turns sometimes it helps quite a bit. Depends on the album.
