This must be a very crazy thing as I have searched for hours and can not find anybody or anything talking about understanding.
I do have PTSD (yes, I am working with a therapist) experience several different elements of anxiety (from physical panic attack to emotional attacks). Sometimes I am just fine and seem to function almost normally, but then there are times when things are bad in just one area (like I will have the ball in my throat feeling or jitters) sometimes it is just emotional (like all of a sudden I am panicked or want to cry and have no reason that I know for it) and sometimes it's a combination of things.
What I am asking about today is even strange by my standards and it is something I have noticed mildly and occasionally for a long time, but seems to be happening a little more often lately. I seem to sometimes have a reaction to my own touch. It doesn't have to be my hands, it can even be my feet touching each other in bed or touching my other leg. Sometimes I will be trying to go to sleep and feel the anxiety building and realize it is because I am laying on my hand and my hand is touching my stomach. I try to ignore it and go to sleep because it is completely rediculous and crazy but I often have to change position so nothing is touching before it will settle down. I have even noticed that there are times when I have to try to keep my fingers apart and have pushed blanket between my fingers so they don't touch each other.
Is this a condition that is known or just a very strange aspect of my anxiety and does anybody have any idea why it would be happening? I am trying to not get built up about it and have tried to ignore it for a very long time, but the longer it goes on the stranger it gets and I would like an idea of if there is a reason it is happening.
