A 5.2 earthquake hit in a neighboring state one night with aftershocks felt in Indiana where I live.while I was sleeping it jarred me out of bed and I now wakeup occasionally in the middle of the night feeling what can best described as "phantom earthquakes." I checked the Earthquake website [http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/] and there is nothing that validates my slumberous tremors. (SIDENOTE: Although I just updated 10 minutes later and surprisingly there was a 6.4 in Russia– but I find that somewhat besides the point.)

I don’t necessarily have a fear of earthquakes. Ever since the one we had felt it has caused me to wake up several times in the middle of the night feeling like there was a trembling occurring, none of which have been confirmed on the above website.

I have Googled my heart’s desire to find out if this is a legit thing I’m experiencing…phantom quakes. Any help and serious answerers would be helpful! Thanks.
