Weird things your body does, and you wonder if it happens to others too?(694 Posts)
I know Im not the only one.
I cant even be arsed to name change, here goes.
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.
Not me, but I had a b/f who used to kind of 'spray' from some kind of gland under his tongue when he yawned
Oh just remembered this. Last year I woke up in the middle of a hysterical laugh. I actually laughed out loud and it was the best feeling ever but annoyingly I had no recollection of the dream , just that I knew it was really really funny. My DH was scared to death, it really freaked him out but i felt great and lay there waiting to get back to sleep with a big smile on my face. Not happened since.
Reading this old thread has been the best laugh i've had for ages( maybe I need to get out more..) Javelin arse stories have had me in stitches. Me and my sister get them when due on and we've always called them bum stabs! They quite literally make me stand on my tip toes and make a face like someone has hooked one of my nostrils for a few seconds until it passes. Thought it was just us!
Yes to flashy light in corner of eye when rubbing it, twitchy eye lid, water collecting fanny, pains/itches on opposite parts of body that make me jump, jerks when dropping off to sleep, hot wet feeling on thighs, weird itch between ear and throat that i scratch by making a weird noise.
It's been like therapy reading it all. Should be compulsory reading for all women.
Whoever bumped this is a genius.
I get the Alice one, but it is when I am mid argument or have had a row with someone [doesn't happen often] or when I am angry and try to sleep that day.
Itchy but triggers somewhere else, due to nerves being connected in the body I suppose.
And not mentioned:
When I lie down on my left side, I get the burps. I also get this no matter if my body is face up or down, but if my head is to the left, I get burps. I burp and burp and it comes from right down in my stomach. I cannot stop this. Unless I turn over. I asked a doctor once about it and she said 'OOh [waving her hands about] we are all different aren't we'. Well, thanks for that love.
Going deaf when stretching-check
Rush of saliva means throwing up is imminent-check
If I scratch my back the itch moves and continues to do so after each bit is scratched-quite satisfying this one!
Please can I have the orgasm after weeing one
oh and sometimes I feel like I'm in a daze when walking around, like nothing feels real... I sometimes feel a sense of urgency and the need to rush around even when I don't need to.
Queefing after 'doing it' from behind. WHY does this happen. Most embarrassing thing EVER lmao.
Whenever I drink alcohol, about 5 minutes after my first sip I get a cramping pain in my shoulders...it only lasts about 5-10 minutes but it freaks me out! It happens every time! Any one else experience this?!
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.
I shake when I'm even moderately excited.
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.
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.
I also smell cigarette smoke sometimes hours or days before I have a seizure or severe migraine.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Oh and if you push on my belly button I get this sensation to pee LOL
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
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.
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.
