Sometimes, when I've just stopped ( usually in a car park, the car next to me moves and I have a mini panic as it feels like it's MY car that's moving! ( Prepares for the men in white coats to come and take her away. )

Ive had that .. It's very disconcerting! Made me slam my brakes on a few times.

Oooooh me too. Even more unnerving when at traffic lights Confused

I get this. Mind tricks I think?

Yes I get that. Almost like sea sickness. Especially get it at traffic lights on hills.
But I have epilepsy so I've always thought it might be connected to that.

Me too!

I find it works best when on trains and buses where you aren't in control of the movement. I love it when this happens!

I've never had it in the car. Maybe cos I don't drive and don't really notice other cars.

But I often have it at train stations. Especially if the train next to mine pulls away. It feels like it's the one that I'm on which has started to move.

Once I was on A massive ferry in Greece, I saw we were moving off, and began to feel queasy, till I realised it was the one next to us moving, and we were still stationary.....

My car did start to move really slowly once when i put the boot up to get my bags out. i was able to get the handbrake quickly and it wouldnt have hit anything or anyone , but it really freaked me out and now i am paranoid about the handbrake and putting the boot up in case the car rolls away from me again! If someone moves away at the side of me i think its my car moving and i often go back to double check the car that the handbrake is actually on. its a fear of mine now and i have no idea why it happened as its one of those automatic hand brakes and the car wasnt on any kind of slope or anything unusual. I hate driving as it is anyway! I hate being on a train when its stationary and a train at the side of it moves off too, it feels weird.

The car on both sides of me started to move off at the same time the other day. Now, that was disconcerting!

Happens to me too. On trains as well! Bloody annoying.

Completely normal. All movement is relative. Ground yourself by looking at something outside that isn't moving, like a tree or a building.
