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.

If I wait a while to have a wee, my finger tips go numb when I finally let go. I get the same feeling when I have alcohol.
I pushed my belly button inside when I was 12 and panicked for ages it was going to unravel and my insides would fall out.
I get a weird heart thing where it kind of pauses for a couple of beats and my chest feels really full and then it does a big thump about an hour after eating a toasted cheese sandwich. It has put me off cheese toasties a bit.
I do the gleeking, and the scratching one part of the body trigger and itch in the other too.
Sleep orgasms check. Poke belly button to cringe fanny check. Cringed fanny when dd standing at top of slide leaning over edge. Check.

I also have a bizarre allergy but I have RL friends on here who know about it and I don't want to out myself after that lot.

My bladder KNOWS when I'm close to the loo.

Seriously, if I'm desperate for a wee, but not in dire need, as soon as I'm in the bathroom/public loo, the urge becomes even greater, by the time I'm near the toilet itself it's surged to the point of fumbling with trousers/underwear in near emergency "if I don't sit on the toilet NOW, I'm going to wet myself!" mode.

What's that all about?

YY to:
Javelin arse
Phantom drip
Clicky/bubbling knees
Pain in ear
Random sudden pain under ribs alleviated by bracing myself for a deep breath
Sucking up bathwater (but rare now as I shower!)

One thing I've not seen mentioned - sometimes when I get indigestion I feel the pain pretty much all over my body. I'll have awful 'trapped wind' sensations in my shoulders, neck, legs and head. Taking indigestion tablets doesn't work, so it's a case of walking around slowly, sipping warm water. And it only ever happens in the middle of the night.

I haven't read the whole thread but will add my contribution grin

When I clean my ears with a cotton bud my throat goes itchy and I cough/gag. I don't even push deep blush

I've not read the whole thread but I get:

Ear flutter on the left side when I've been drinking. It drives me bonkers. Think it's to do with a blocked tube maybe

Leg jitter in bed - one side only

Numb patch on the top of my back/top of neck. A PP said it may be to do with an epidural, which would make sense

Pain in the back of my heels when I get out of bed - probably from wearing unsuitably high heels

Glad I have found this thread if I eat beetroot it makes my mouth tingle if the top of my mouth is itchy I do this strange clicking thing with my tongue which scratches it I really like the smell of petrol and turps .

Do anyone else's eyes water when they poo? Mine do blush

Several weird things:

Sleep orgasms (love them!)

A 'rain-shaker' noise in my ear,

Crackling ears

Burning hot knees at night only ( have to wedge the duvet between them as its so unpleasant)

Crawling skin- I scratch an itch on my face as though an insect were crawling over it but there's nothing there and it won't go away iyswim...horrid.

Twitchy eyes.

when.DP cleans her ears with a bud, she coughs, always find this so random, even 9.5 years latershock wink grin grin

Mammanat222 Sun 04-May-14 22:49:01

PS: I only say fanny cringe in polite company - it's not something I just blurt out.

I also get sleep orgasms! They always wake me up (thankfully not DP)

Mammanat222 Sun 04-May-14 22:38:16

I'm only on page 2 but I have to say I totally get the nervous fanny thing although I have been know to say something "makes my fanny cringe"

Its the only way I can describe it.

I also get the pulled muscle / burning pain that MadamFolly talks about.

God I am only on page 2, how many more dodgy things am I going to have??

YY to migraine aura, javelin arse, delayed bathwater reflux, eyeball pressing lights, period pain down legs, Alice in Wonderland syndrome, Sleeping with the Hag. Does anyone get spine curling type thing when hearing extremely loud music, or aeroplanes flying low, almost an erotic thing. Also have sleeping orgasms, I quite like that!

astreveca Fri 02-May-14 10:37:12

God I hope this happens to me. I'm size 11.5 I wear men's shoes and Walmart shoes sad on pair of too small heels almost fits me. sad I Hate my feet.

MissHobart Sun 16-Feb-14 11:27:01

Ooh, I have a belly button fanjo link!! I thought it was just me! grin

McSmoke Sat 15-Feb-14 23:39:13

OohAh...DH gets laryrngospasms, could it be that?

As for the rest...
Javelin arse
Pokey belly button gives me a queasy fanny
Simultaneous pains is far apart areas of body
Punchy urges if brethed in ear
Being scratched a third way down my back is THE most satisfying scratch ever.
Numb area at tip of one shoulderblade.
I hate anyone else clicking joints, but I need to be able to click my own toes when trying on new shoes. If I can't click, then I can't buy them, no way jose!

OohAahBird Sat 15-Feb-14 21:33:33

Oh I have one that no one else has mentioned and am posting it, in hope someone might know what it is.

Every so often, think once every couple of months, when I swallow cause there is saliva in my mouth which you do without thinking about, instead of swallowing normally it goes into my lungs and I start to choke, I can't breath, wheeze, turn red, my eyes stream and it is really scary as well as embarrassing when it happens when I am with other people.

It has happened ever since I was a teenager, I asked my doctor once and they just looked at me like I was mad.

I get a really painful ache in my right shoulder the day before my period starts.

Just read about Alice in Wonderland syndrome, I've always had that! Never taken any drugs, but do get migraines, so that is interesting!

If I'm watching an eerie film or reading a suspenseful passage in a book, my eyes begin to water.
If I walk barefoot on smooth pebbles the sensation is felt quite overwhelmingly in my fanjo. Bristly surfaces make me want to wee.
If DH hits exactly the right spot (ahem) my leg twitches in uncontrollable spasms (yes, like a dog getting its tummy tiickled) until he stops
Sometimes lying in bed if I have trapped wind I can both feel and see the location of the bubble protruding and moving along my tummy - identical look and sensation to feeling to baby sticking a foot into you when pg
I only have to think of salt and vinegar crisps for my salivary glands right at the back of my jaw under my ears to start stinging...doing it now that I just wrote that, damn

Yes also to the scratching an itch in one part of the body and getting a shooting sensation in a completely unrelated part
Yes to post bath whoosh
Yes to Alice in Wonderland
Yes to javelin arse
Yes to going deaf during a stretch
and a few others I've already forgotten

Fantastic thread

chickensarmpit If I poke my belly button I get shooting pain through my clit! shock

Does anyone else occasionally find that everything suddenly goes really far away, and people appear to have tiny little heads? It's very surreal.

Ihavetopushthepramalot Fri 21-Dec-12 01:25:26

Yes I would have thought that too, it's just a shame that all my many boyfriend s thought it was appropriate to kiss there!
Ha ha never experienced the ticklish arse, but almost every other body part at different times of the month have been no go areas so feel your pain. (Or I'm going to punch you square in the nose rage) wink

chickensarmpit Fri 21-Dec-12 00:35:08

And if someone scratches my arse cheeks it sends me to sleep.
I must of been an arse man in a previous life!

chickensarmpit Fri 21-Dec-12 00:31:35

If i poke my belly button i get a shooting pain right up my back passage. I don't like it shock

I hate having my neck touched, as I imagine a lot of people do... but I also get the same ticklish I-will-punch-you feeling when my bum is touched. blush I don't know of anyone else who has such a ticklish arse.
