    Weird nose bleeds

    I am 14 (male) I get nosebleeds very easily.

    Metallic sounds = metallic taste

    Ever since I can remember the sounds of metal clanking or scraping together cause my muscles to clinch up and then a weird metallic taste seems to be released in my mouth and my teeth begin to hurt. I want to know if this is a psychological pain or a genuine one. Also is there any way to make it stop as it causes discomfort and makes me look silly when I hear a fork touch a plate and it causes me to yell, cover my ears, and then proceed to beg whoever did it to stop touching their fork to their plate....

    Why, why, why am I so unbalanced?

    So, here's my story. I sure hope someone out there can point me in the right direction. I'm 35, and all my life I've been very active and agile, and I've had great coordination and balance. Over the past few years (maybe 4-5?) I've noticed that my tendency toward car sickness has increased, to the point that I usually avoid being a passenger if at all possible, but nothing else seemed out of the ordinary and I didn't think much of it. About 8-9 months ago I started dancing....
