Do you suffer from PVS? PVS is one of the latest afflictions to which some of us have fallen victim, including me. Some have described it as a tactile hallucination.
PVS stands for Phantom Vibration Syndrome. It describes those moments when you suddenly find yourself reaching for your pocketed cell phone because, at least for a split second, you thought you felt it vibrating, only to learn it was not. Initial reports and anecdotal evidence suggest two-thirds of us have experienced PVS.
We place our cell phone on vibrate because we dont want to create a disturbance, but our 24/7 connected mindset predisposes us always to be on vibrate watch. So we become a bit trigger happy.
How exciting! Another technology-driven affliction for our modern world to dodge. Im sure PVS will take its place in the halls of occupational hazards among the likes of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Hmm. I wonder if PVS therapy will qualify under my HSA. I will have to check that. But not now. Ive got to run—I think my cell phone is vibrating!
