Is this a thing?

Apr 16, 2018

I've jumped back and forth between thinking it's a form of synesthesia to it isn't more times than I care to count, so I thought I'd ask all of you. In my profile on musescore I say I visualize words. And then when I introduced myself in this group I said I felt them. Both are true, and I can't really explain either of them, but I'll try. When I read a word, I both see and feel something. As I've explained to my friends, it's like watching a movie starring geometric shapes, because I always visualize the words as cylinders, or rectangular prisms, or spheres. And then I feel something actually physical. It's strongest with names. One person I know, his name makes me feel like I've been pushed. Another name induces seasickness.

It's weird. I'm not too sure about the seeing being a type of synesthesia, but when I feel stuff, is that visual-tactile? Just checking if anyone else experiences this.
