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.

When I'm nearly asleep, loud or sudden noises register as flashes of light.
Also, holding partly-used batteries makes my fingers ache!

Whenever I eat cheese my eyebrows sweat.

I can also smell bogies sometimes.

MrsWolowitz Sun 05-Oct-14 08:10:51

I shake when I'm even moderately excited. hmm

if I'm watching a tense film my teeth can chatter I'll shake that much. I work in a public role, if I'm faced with an angry client I'm more than happy to deal with it and don't feel nervous but I'll shake and sometimes can't even write because I'm shaking so much. I hate it because I hate the thought of them thinking I'm scared of them.

I just remembered a lot more

my knees go cold when I breastfeed but only if I lie down

I feel dizzy and sick if I hit my shin, ankle bones or knees. not if I hurt any other parts

I'm allergic to kiwis (don't know anyone else)

I hear electric humming and high piched whistling & noises others don't seem to. Some of it can cause a panic attack. If the tv is on mute downstairs but switched on I can hear it's on while in a different room, with doors closed, even if I'm upstairs. I have hyperacusis.

my sister can burp on demand. proper ones not just the air swallow types.

my DS2 has that thing a pp mentioned about everything suddenly looking tiny/far away. no trigger seemingly, it just happens, lasts for a few minutes then goes.

when I paint my nails they feel heavy. if I put two coats of nail varnish on they feel heavier than with just one coat.

when kids have fever I can tell within +/- 0.5C degree accuracy of how hot they are just by touching the back of their neck. most of the time I'm spot on.

I also have migraines with aura. it starts with a flashing spot that grows bigger. it blocks my vision. as it gets smaller the headache starts. got one right now

I can smell in the air when it's about to snow.

I can see tiny flashing spots everywhere not long before a storm breaks out

oh and when I use earbuds in my left ear it makes me cough. right ear - nothing.
some of my kids are the same.

ZingOfSeven Sun 05-Oct-14 06:47:05

if I cry a lot my eye colour changes slightly from grey-blue to green-blue.

Some rooms feel comfortable/uncomfortable, safe/unsafe, happy/sad, calm/angry etc even without people in it. I can't even explain what I mean by that.
I also have a feeling of what is the "safest" area/direction in any room or place and prefer to sit with that behind my back. if I can't I feel unsafe.

equally I prefer to sleep "upright" with my head towards North. I'm ok sleeping "sideways", with my head towards East or West (in that order) but I can not sleep "upside down", head pointing towards South. even the thought makes me feel panicky, like I'd fall down.

I can wake myself up from a bad dream by forcing myself to shake my head while still in the dream.

However I'm incapable of holding in a fart. I don't know how others "suck it back" so it doesn't happen.confused

I also smell cigarette smoke sometimes hours or days before I have a seizure or severe migraine.

CatWitch Sun 05-Oct-14 06:01:02

I have buzzing fanny syndrome. It does feel as if a mobile is on vibrate, it only happens once in awhile but it is a very odd, not unpleasant sensation.

Loud noises enrage me. When I rule the world motorbikes and jackhammers will be banned.

I have sleepgasms and wake up pissed to find no actual sex taking place.

milkjetmum Sun 05-Oct-14 05:57:51

When I'm really cross I feel kind of dizzy when I talk, like when you're drunk and the room turns. I assume it is an adrenalin rush or something, but I only have it when I'm about to say something in an argument. One of the reasons I hate confrontations!

Aussiemum78 Sun 05-Oct-14 05:36:52

Squeaky eye.

When I'm about 2 days from a cold, if I rub my eyes they squeak. They sound like the sponge on a car squeak. Quite hilarious, I keep doing it until dp says ugh stop it! Lol

Echo farts. They are new. Apparently when you have a Brazilian there's more room for air to rattle around down there.

bullinthesea Wed 01-Oct-14 11:03:34

Yes, I get the nervous fanny too, when I'm really scared or freaked out.
I'm so glad you posted this, as I thought it was an odd reaction!

AdriannaJoleigh Sat 30-Aug-14 09:09:04

Oh and if you push on my belly button I get this sensation to pee LOL

AdriannaJoleigh Sat 30-Aug-14 09:07:59

I have this tick that happens only when I'm itchy. When I'm itchy, my ear makes this weird vibrating noise. It's so hard to explain. Does anyone else have this? I've asked my friends and family about this and they all say they don't have it. Also, sometimes there's an itch underneath my skin and I can't reach it. What's that about? lol

BendyMum15 Wed 20-Aug-14 19:50:22

I have hypermobile joint syndrome so all my joints do freaky things. The most obvious are my knees when I'm standing up - they bend backwards and if I stand with straight legs it feels like I'm bending them
I sit so my legs make a w shape.
Yes to nervous fanny and the fanny daggers.
The first few days of breastfeeding I feel really sad/nervous every time baby latches on but then this goes away after a while - guess its hormones.
I hate having my belly button poked and DS loves to poke it.

When I have a fright, I get a prickly sensation in my armpits.

bluesbaby Fri 08-Aug-14 23:17:31

I haven't had it for ages, but when I was underweight I had it a lot... The feeling of someone suddenly sat on your chest/ribs and you cannot move, I always feel "stuck".

I can't stand having my belly button poked, it feels like my organs are being stroked. Makes me feel sick.

Random pains - permanent long term pain in the outer part of the boob (just one). No idea what it is. Docs weren't interested in checking it out. Very noisy (sometimes painful) jaw - I can hear it move/grind and it's loud! Sounds like sand! Lastly on the pain front - feet. Does anyone else's feet spasm if they over stretch? I have to be very very careful when attempting box split, and a few other sports (may out me cos they're very niche) but includes swimming - pretty dangerous but induces swearing fit and unbearable pain.

I don't get the "alice in wonderland" sydrome but I do get the swimming vortex type thing when I'm falling into sleep. Must e similar I guess. I love the radiating warmth when I get into bed - my legs will automatically heat up the bed to a lovely temp without really doing anything, I get a radiating sensation. Also when I'm ill I tend to hallucinate - the room turns inside out and everything looks weirdly sharp and vulgar. And sort of fast. Like I'm slower than everything else but my eyes are moving quickly. It's horrible. No one else I know gets this but I can't be the only one.

tonsil stones, it's mining sad sad

Javelin arse...extraordinary sense of smell...Alice in wonderland syndrome, but only when falling asleep, get a sad feeling with it too...and my pelvic floor involuntarily clenches when I see someone I fancy!

Also a 'missing' heartbeat every so often, but this only usually happens when stressed so like palpitations I guess?

And I cannot apply eye make up or put my contact lenses in without having my mouth open as I do it!

JoanJettPack Sun 03-Aug-14 23:20:55

I've only read about 4 pages in, but yes to nervous fanny, gleeking and javelin arsee.

Also, I get indigestion in my collarbone. It absolutely knackers.

Pipbin Sun 03-Aug-14 22:46:34

Old thread I know but;

yes to nervous fanny,
yes to sleep orgasms,
and yes to bladder knowing when you are near the loo. I might not even think I need a wee until I actually get home but as soon as I get indoors then I am about to wee myself. As a child I thought that my fanjo could see the light and would know it was about to get the chance to wee.

And I sneeze if I look at the sun.

FridayJones Fri 04-Jul-14 13:13:18

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.

welshnat Thu 19-Jun-14 09:17:50

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
