According to the UK newspaper The Register, a fall off the balance board made Amanda Flowers hyper-sensitive to vibrations of any kind.
So while you're screaming 'Oh, where's my cell phone," she's just screaming "ooooooooh."
I admit it, my first thought was I'm going to get real clumsy while doing my Free Step tonight.
But when you put it in medical terms -- persistent sexual arousal syndrome due to a damaged nerve -- Flowers' condition goes from "oh yeah" to "oh no."
A damaged nerve? I remember what it felt like to have my daughter bounce around on my nerves while I was pregnant. I wouldn't go back there if you held a gun to my head.
Persistent sexual arousal syndrome has only been recognized since 2001, and it was recently linked by scientists to a more commonplace condition -- restless leg syndrome. And in case you think it's all in Flowers' head, that linkage is what helped scientists determine once and for all that this is a real condition rather than something psychological.
Which pretty much guarantees I'm going to be stepping carefully tonight. And let's face it -- my husband is text-happy enough. We don't need to be giving him any ideas.
Does this sound like a dream condition?
