|Tech Addiction or Something More Sinister??|
Or - speaking from experience - I suggest it could also be a sign you have MS. During my early days of violently ignoring a range of symptoms from total limb numbness to constantly having to pee to an insanely itchy itch that could not be scratched to jittery, bouncy, jackhammer legs to falling down, I often felt this so-called Phantom Cellphone Vibration. I assumed I was going crazy. I was eventually diagnosed with MS, which explained most of the symptoms. But I still assumed the Cellphone Vibration phenomenon was a sign of being nutso and/or hyper-aware of the idea of receiving calls. When a few months down the line, I finally saw an MS-specialist neuro as opposed to a garden variety neuro I was stunned, startled, and amazed to discover that this was just another quirky MS trick. The neuro showed me that I had failed to realize the connection between head movement and this vibration experience. No phone calls for me - just Lhermitte's sign!
