Something digging in my back.....

this is a bit weird

I noticed it starting to happen about 6 months ago whilst I was driving my GF's car.

Everynow and then when I drive it feels like someone is pushing their feet or knee into the back of the seat, like maybe a child would do if they sit behind you, but no-one sits behind me. Its weird

This also started happening when I get the bus to work, and no-one is sat behind me as I sit on the back seat.

Its a very strange feeling, and I dont get it all the time only every now and then. i can actually feel something pushing the back of my seat and it feels like my body goes forward slightly too and i can feel something in my back. I have no back health problems either. It only happens when I am sat in vehicles


anyone on here have similar thing or know what Im talking about ?

I can imagine what you mean, although i can't think what would cause it, other than a nerve or muscular problem.

May be worth going to the doc and get it checked out, it could be a warning that something is going on with your back.

Speaking of knees or kids kicking your want to try a 12 hour flight from Singapore to New Zealand with a little brat constantly kicking the back of your chair! Oh how i loved that flight...almost as much as the flight i took some time after 9/11, and another kid behind me, about the same age as the one i just mentioned, went on incessantly about 'what if there was a bomb', and Boom, bang, nee-naa, nee-naa, BOOM..haha, haha, we are going to crash...that was another really enjoyable flight, i can tell ya!

Hope your back is ok, seriously though, don't mess about with it, go and see the doc.

Sounds like a muscle spasm mate (the non painful kind)! Errant brain signal causes a muscle in your back to flutter. Mid region by any chance? I only ask because I've had them before an each time they have been mid back.

I have had a sharp stabbing pain in my back for years. I finally found it was a knife sticking in there, forensics tells me it has the govts finger prints all over it.

99% chance a chair/back-ghost is following you

1% chance you have a muscular problem

I had a similar feeling before my spinal cord swelled up. Is there any tingling in your legs or feet? If so, you better get an MRI as you may have a bone spur or something similar.

You are not crazy my friend. My wife and i experience these pushes in the seat often. It really does feel like the kids are pushing on the back of the seat. It is a really strange feeling especially when driving.

to the cause of it, unknown. We just think of it as someone is along for the ride...Thanks for posting this, as i thought it was only us that had this happen to.

Here is a list of things that it "could" be that no one has mentioned yet:

1. A ghost that follows you around and likes sitting behind you in cars.

2. An evil demon that wants to kill you in a car.


4. MIB.

5. Invisible aliens.

6. A tumor.

I would visit the doctor and have him do a CAT scan. Good luck and best wishes.

I noticed the same thing twice so far in a car that I have owned for a little over 3 months. The first time I blew it off thinking I must have been losing it, but today it was much abrupt. It literally felt as if my son was in the back seat behind me pushing his feet into the back of my seat. I told my wife about it today, and she said she experienced the same feeling while driving my car a couple of weeks back. It is incredibly strange.. I can't imagine we would both have the same sort of back spasm, only while driving my car.

I have had this happen several times in many different cars. The first time it was in a Ford Ranger XLT pickup truck (with an extra cab). It would happen so often I would pull over to the side and inspect the extra cab area thinking that someone or something was back there. Then I was worried that a mouse or rat had gotten into the seat padding and was nesting in there...but there wasn't any sounds or droppings and traps didn't catch anything. I wound up trading the truck in for a Nissan Pathfinder...and within a few months the same thing started happening. It can be very disconcerting if it happens when I am all alone in the car or driving at night. I'm relieved to hear that other people have had this experience helps to know that I am not the only one that has experienced this.

I'm bumping this in the hope of speaking to someone about it.
