Sometimes when I'm nervous I start giggling or smiling. It makes me real irritated but the more irritated I get sometimes the more I want to giggle. Thing is a lot of people get confused, like once me and my boyfriend were innocently playing, I'd push him, he'd push me, a few smacks on the arm. Just playing not hitting hard, but when I went to do it to him my finger hit his watch and it hurt me a LOT, I started to laugh more then I was and then started to cry, he was real confused and looked at me without knowing what to do. It's happened other times, a few times he said something real bad that had happened and it really made me sad and nervous and I started to smile, I felt so bad cause he might think I'm teasing me even though he knows now after 3 years that I'm like that. But the thing is what about people that don't know me? Already with my boyfriend in the begging once we had a fight and he said maybe we should take our separate ways and I started to smile, I felt like it was the worse time for that, I did try to explain it to him, luckily we managed to fix our differences and are fine now, and he knows my little defaults. Anyone else have this problem?

I think its all right. Its just a way to relieve yourself frm stress and tension. in my case I feel like peeing whenever I am nervous.Thats far worst than giggling.

Sometimes that happens top me too but when I go to the toilet nothing happens, but I'll always feel like going, that usually happens when I have to do something in front of people like acting in theater....

Depends what nervousness it is. Sometimes I feel like crying, sometimes I just can't stop laughing. If it's something fun that I'm going to do or something good, then I just laugh all the time.

When I am nervous. Some time I laugh to reduce nervousness. It will help me to feel good.

I experience it a lot too, whenever I'm nervous I can't help but smile or giggle. It's probably my body's natural way of releasing tension.

Yes, it happens to me. Sometimes When I'm nervous and my boss called me inside his cabin, I laugh. This irritates my boss. This happens even when the discussion is serious. I'm unable to control this laugh. People mistook me for this laugh. They think I'm mannerless fellow. I try hard to be silent, but invain.
