What is the word used to describe that feeling you occasionally get while falling?
If you don't know the feeling, it feels like the midsection of your gut is becoming numb and is trying to escape out of the top of your ribcage.
Update: Unfortunately a single word for this feeling doesn't seem to exist. If this word doesn't exist, is there a short phrase used to describe this feeling?
Answer: There is no specific term for this. The closest phrase is in fact 'feeling of falling'. The answer which selected as correct and did state that there is not specific term for the feeling.
