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 forget to brush my teeth at night my breath/mouth doesn't feel as rough as it does with usual nighttime brushing.

In the film 'Labyrinth', there's a bit near the beginning where Hoggle turns around and goes 'Ahhhhh! Now THAT'S more like it!' Every time, without fail, at precisely the same moment, I get an urgent need-to-pee feeling in my fanny. Been watching the film since I was little, and it's EVERY TIME

Slightly odd, can't even begin to imagine why.

I feel the pain if I see someone on tv gets hurt

Tingly legs - lets me know when I need a poo blush

And yes to post bath whoosh - always thought just me until Caitlin Moran mentioned it in something funny!

I get an itch on the tip of my nose just before orgasm - every time. That's odd.

Yes to javelin arse and shot putters cervix, plus weights-in-the-labia when on period - haven't read all the pages of this but haven't come across it, anyone else?

Cold things make me cough. I presume this is related to my nasty postnasal drip business but it's embarrassing.

And sometimes I get the sensation of water dripping down my legs. But when I look there is no water.

If my electric toothbrush runs out of battery and I have to use a manual one my teeth feel like marshmallows.
Whilst exercising sometimes I can hear/feel a ticking in my brain.
Every time I go outside I sneeze within a minute.
After drinking alcohol my teeth really really ache the next day, and after just one drink my hands/arms go numb. (Lightweight)
After sex I always hiccup. hmm

I used to get little shooting pains in my head all the time, not painful just worrying. I went to the Doc and he said 'are they like little electric shocks? yes I said, 'that is exactly what they are like' (thankful that I was not going mad) and he said 'I have no idea what that is'??

Reading a story out loud makes me yawn. No idea why because I manage to hold conversations perfectly well without yawning so why should reading aloud be any different? confused

I have a nerve on my back that when massaged makes me twitch like a carp flopping about on a beach!!!

Using an electric toothbrush makes me need a pee.

Omg boomer - I have that tick too! Sorry to post on this old thread but I'm just so glad to hear that I'm not alone! smile

I sometimes have a full-body shiver just after a wee.

I get one strong hiccup after the first drink of a cold can of Coke.

I can give myself a mild case of goosebumps on each limb by lightly tickling the associated quadrant of my abdomen.

I don't get the "nervous fanny" thing, but I get a similar anxiety feeling in the sole of my foot

I often get a weird (mildly unpleasant, but not horrible) feeling in my vagina/vulva area when drinking alcohol- I'd be really interested to know if anyone else gets this as I've done a quick google and can't find anything!

Chewing raisins makes my teeth sensitive and they all feel loose in my gums. Only the dark raisins not the soft sultanas.

I've also had javelin arse, a buzzing fanjo and linked nerves (upper inner thigh waxing used to create all sorts of sensations over my body)

I have some kind of 'tic' which makes me draw in my arm and tense the muscles so that the forearm and upper arm come together (like a T Rex's upper arms held close to the body). It makes me feel like I'm 'resetting' myself. When I'm typing I often have to scratch one of my fingers with my thumbnail to do the same 'reset'. I also shake down an imaginary watch on my other arm. I haven't worn a watch for about ten years and when I did it never slipped down my arm.

When I'm very tired it really feels like I'm wearing a hat.

MothertotheLordsofmisrule Mon 28-Dec-15 22:04:56

I sneeze with extra strong mints and when drinking bitter.

I also seem incapable of not biting my own cheeks when eating.

Javelin Arse has a proper medical name: Proctalgia Fugax grin

I get "nervous bladder" if I see someone, usually a child, falling over or doing something dangerous - a horrible need-to-wee feeling in the bottom of my abdomen

Sneezing with extra strong mints & eyebrow plucking

Fanny bubbles

Quite often while at rest I get a sudden burst of fast successive heartbeats which end with the feeling that it's beat so hard it's rattled the back of my throat resulting in a short coughing fit.

I get hiccups when I eat burgers, bacon or sausages but not with pork!

LovelyKittenMittens13 Tue 01-Dec-15 02:54:20


Everytime i get near sharp wrist is itchy..I cant stop scratching till I get away
Is it because I used to do self harm and it's calling me again?

Oh, and the breastfeeding feeling that I got (but only in the first 2 or 3 weeks) was not happy or sad, particularly, but felt like I was tripping! Slightly stoned/psychedelic vision thing going on ...grin
