There is a name for when you feel like your phone vibrated but it didn't

We have all been there: you are sitting on the couch, watching TV, and your phone vibrates to tell you that you received a text. You check, but there are no notifications. Are you losing your mind? Actually, this occurrence is a lot more common than you may think. Phantom vibration syndrome is when you feel your phone vibrate even though it does not vibrate. Other names for the phenomenon include ‘ringxiety’ and ‘phonetom’. It occurs when the brain perceives that you receive a text even though no actual text comes through.
