    For me,

    Uncomfortably is feeling things are just not right and it’s hard to explain. I can just be sitting around worrying about the people I will have to interact with that day or the things piling up on my to do list.

    Yes it's pretty much like this for me too, if I feel uncomfortable. I suppose it's caused by worries or things I'm not confident about, or difficult things like an interview or other challenges. I usually try to get some exercise like walking or swimming, this distracts me and also lifts my mood, plus gives me time to have a think, and I may come up with useful ideas about whatever is challenging...

    At the top of such a list, much of anything that can instantly evoke a "fight or flight response". Though agreed, lesser considerations can still cause me to ruminate about things, which is also usually anything but pleasant.

    Being some place unfamiliar or new. It always triggers those feelings.

    It probably means either my neck hurts or people are looking at me.

    Tired or stressed. Mostly and often by people.

    Emotionally uncomfortable is a feeling of uncertainty about something or someone.
    Usually from being with someone I do not like their attitude or speech.
    Also being in new and different places, driving, crowds and talking with people I just don't
    find enjoyable. On edge with. Change in plans too.

    Physical uncomfortable is anything that doesn't physically feel good.
    Like my stomach ache I have right now from eating something too sweet.
    Tum, Tum, Tum, Tum, TUM!

    For me it usually just makes me want to retreat and be alone, regardless of the kind of discomfort.
