Do you suffer from Rinxiety? 
How about Phantom Ring Effect (or Phantom Ringing), Phantom Vibration Syndrome, Vibranxiety, HypoVibroChondria or Fauxcellarm?
All of the above terms describe the sensation and the false belief that one can hear his or her mobile phone ringing or feel it vibrating, when in fact the telephone is not doing so.
Phantom ringing may be experienced while taking a shower, watching television, or using a noisy device. Humans are particularly sensitive to auditory tones between 1,000 and 6,000 hertz, and basic mobile phone ringers often fall within this range. This frequency range can generally be more difficult to locate spatially, thus allowing for potential confusion when heard from a distance.
False vibrations are less well understood, however, and could have psychological or neurological sources.
With me, Phantom Ringing happens most often when I am driving and listening to the radio. Many times, I check to see if my cell phone is ringing/vibrating (I have it set on both ring and vibrate).
About 80% of the time, it is merely a Fauxcellarm. In fact, yesterday I was in my car listening to a program about Rinxiety when it happened! Very strange.
Is this VibraSchtick new? Am I riding a 21st century phantom fad? Hardly!
Nikola Tesla knew something that many of his contemporaries in the late 1800s either did not know, or chose to ignore. He knew that with the amazing power of electricity and current, came an incredible capacity for danger.
Sadly, because studying our own health has taken such a back seat to technological advances, we could very well be causing our own issues. What if Phantom Vibration Syndrome (or Vibranxiety) isn’t actually a neurological problem, but rather, the result of a very real physical ailment? How tragic it would be to know that by using even the tiniest of devices, we’re killing ourselves.
Tesla wouldn’t approve, but then, I don’t think he’d be surprised.
And will someone PLEASE answer that phone?
Ringxiety is a portmanteau neologism formed from the words “ringtone” and “anxiety.” It was first coined by David Laramie, a doctoral student at the California School of Professional Psychology, whose dissertation concerned the effects of cell phones on behavior.
