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.

I can hit the rear view mirror from the back seat of the car with a 'gleek'.

Sometimes nipple stimulation gives me what I can only describe as a 'sad, lonely want-my-mum' feeling blush

I got the exact same feeling at the onset of each of my three labours, so I'm convinced it's got something to do with oxytocin. Or that I'm a freak.

If I haven't had sex for a week or so I start having orgasms in my sleep!

Not the kind of thing you talk about in real life so I don't know if other people have them too!

They are real because they wake me up.

Anyone?!

Talking of hips, I sometimes get a hot feeling across my hip as though someones pouring hot water across it. Or if Im holding one of the kids, as though they are weeing (despite the nappy!).

Had that for as long as I can remember.

Nervous fanny when I look down from a great height.

In certain positions my arms dislocate from their sockets and I can pull them in and out at will. I have never met anyone else with this but it is down to shallow sockets, I think. Also, all mints including toothpaste, make me sneeze - I have only met one other person with this.

Have friend with twitching eyelid thingy who was offered NHS Botox!

I get the nervous fanny thing too! Thought I was a lone weirdo but glad to see it's not just me grin

I get pains in the soles of my feet if I see someone in danger

Your DH is right Eye - gleeking

GreenEyesAndHam Thu 19-Jul-12 21:59:26

I also get the white fingers when driving, especially if I leave my left hand on the gearstick

toxtethogrady Thu 19-Jul-12 22:00:24

god yes- the oxytocin thing...totally had that feeling when b'feeding for the first few mins, must've been the let down. you've hit the nail on the head there in yr description.

i gleek too, nice to have a name for it

I have a twitch at night, where I'll be almost asleep and then suddenly jump. It wakes dh me up.

I can see things out of the back of my head. Seriously, I would be a good teacher. If the kids (any kids, not just mine) are doing things out of my eyeline, I just know it.

Ok, here may be the place to ask . . . if you touch my DH on his inner left thigh it makes his balls 'twang' - you can watch them. Anyone else?

There is something wrong with my right ear that if I get a loud noise near it a nerve is triggered, under my left shoulder blade, just as if someone poked me. I can't hold a phone that side and head-phones are problematic.

UserNameNotAvailable Thu 19-Jul-12 22:01:41

I had heard of it too oh for ducks sake but totally forgot about it until you mentioned it. Its a funny feeling.

Yeah I get the twitchy eye, sharp shooting pains up fan and bum and the itch that isn't really there but somewhere else.

GreenEyesAndHam Thu 19-Jul-12 22:01:45

Really toxteth? I'm so chuffed that I'm not alone grin

CharlieUniformNovemberTango Thu 19-Jul-12 22:02:48

I have a point just below my left shoulder blade that is completely numb. I've had the gp prodding it and not felt a thing.

Occasionally it burns in that point. So much so that my I urial reaction is to try and see if my top is on fire!

I'm assuming it's nerve issues but it can be very annoying!

Balls twang ? I will investigate when DP gets home wink

MeeWhoo Thu 19-Jul-12 22:03:03

gremlindolphin, stealth boast perhaps? grin

toxtethogrady Thu 19-Jul-12 22:03:54

yeah...i used to dread it in a way, it was a really hollow awful feeling, like staring into the abyss. made me feel very sad.
bloody hormones

EyeoftheStorm Thu 19-Jul-12 22:04:42

I can't believe there is independent verification of the word gleeking. Might have to impress DH with a massive one as a reward

Maryz Thu 19-Jul-12 22:04:47

Balls twang confused Mind boggles

grin

GreenEyesAndHam Thu 19-Jul-12 22:04:59

If someone is talking behind me, in a low or deepish voice (not whispering though) my back goes into incontrollable spasms from bum to shoulders. Has proved embarrassing in long queues.

ForFoxsGlacierMints Thu 19-Jul-12 22:05:01

Thank you handsfull, it's intrigued us both for some time!

toxtethogrady Thu 19-Jul-12 22:05:16
