I know Im not the only one.

I cant even be arsed to name change, here goes.

Nervous fanny.

You know when someone falls - hard and cracks their chin or elbow or whatever, my stomach drops, I get a shot of anxiety that shoots through the pit of my stomach down to my fanny. Right in the middle of my fanny I get a horrible feeling of anxiety.

Its only started in the last few years, its really unpleasant. Its like a bolt of aniexty, and I ONLY get it when someone hurts themselves. Wtf is that all about?

Anyway, what weird shit does your body do? Confess.

Auntie - that one's got a name. It's Raynauds Syndrome. My fingers go white to when I'm driving.

I can see 'nervous fanny' joining the MN lexicon and coming into popular usage. Imagine the dictionary entry...OHforDUCKScake will go down in history grin

Does anyone else get stabbing/shooting pains up their fanjo? I've no had it for a while but used to get it a lot.

Latemyskinnyperson - yes, middle fingers. I wasn't sure whether to worry or not!

If I've got a pain somewhere I get what I can only describe as a mini-pneumatic drill noise/feeling in my ears. Never come across anyone else with this so must be a freak. Also get nervous fanny and moving itches.

I love these threads. I'm crying with laughter. I also get shooting pains up my fanjita!

Yeah, I get the weird 'itch that is somewhere else entirely' thing. Except I think my itch is on the top of my left arm only to find it is really just below my navel on the right side. Properly odd.

I don't, however, have an itchy foot or a nervous fanny.

I haven't had cobra spit since they renamed opal fruits.

My fanny is poised under pressure, not nervous at all.


I do get the odd shooting fanjo pain though. Right up like a bolt of lightening.

There are particular hair follicles on my leg where if the hair is pulled out I get a sharp pinching pain in my lower back confused.

I get spots on the inside of my elbows, have done for a few years. They brew for a few days then I can pop them although ot takes me ages as the pus is fairly deep. Don't get them anywhere else on my arms and they occur on both arms. I get one every few months.

Nagoo Thu 19-Jul-12 21:48:47

Oh, my head is all wierd, I can't let the hairdresser rub it. I am like one of those dogs that if you scratch behind their ear their leg goes up and down scratching.

I very rarely post but MadamFolly I get that too, and have spoken to 2 friends about it in the last couple of weeks, and they thought I was mad! So very happy to find out it's not just me.
Also get the nervous fanjo and when I scratch along my right collarbone I feel it all down my forearm.

Crackles in my ear
Ridulously soft nails that I can bend backwards

i had white bogies when pregnant, both times.
i have no idea why

EndoplasmicReticulum Thu 19-Jul-12 21:51:17

Twitchy eyelid anyone? Or is that just me?

BulletProofMum Thu 19-Jul-12 21:51:28

I get reynauds too

toxtethogrady Thu 19-Jul-12 21:52:12

nervous fanny grin

Wolfcub Thu 19-Jul-12 21:53:17

MadamFolly me too, I thought it was just me. I also can't lie on my stomach with my head raised - e.g lying on front to read or use laptop because I almost instantly get an intense cold crushing pain in the front of my head, it goes away shortly after changing position

Handsfullandinamuckingfuddle Thu 19-Jul-12 21:53:56

Yep to the twitcy eyelid - only when I am tired though.
I get a twitchy pulsey thing in my left arm - a bit like a baby licking ......but in my arm.confused

EyeoftheStorm Thu 19-Jul-12 21:54:07

That cobra spit is called 'gleeking'. Knew DH would come in useful one day - he's an Aussie and that's what they call it. Who knew?

Have also read threads on MN about javelin arse. I get that. Nice to put a name to it and know that I'm not alone.

Wolfcub Thu 19-Jul-12 21:54:21

not the spots the head thing

Ephiny Thu 19-Jul-12 21:54:42

Oh I get the twitchy eyelid thing, that's quite common isn't it? Also at times of stress though I have had twitchy upper arm and thigh muscles, have had the twitchy lip as well, and once bizarrely I had it in the muscles of my throat which made me think I was about to choke to death hmm

BogChicken Thu 19-Jul-12 21:54:51

I have strange hips which means my legs can do strange things.....

if you imagine this shape /||\ the two | as thighs and the / and \ as legs i can sit like that. My legs turn through 90 degrees inwards without pain or stretching.

It's hard to explain without you seeing it. but if you were to try it, as a normal non freaky hipped person it would hurt. Badly. and you would probably get locked in that position.

kicking - not licking blush
