Mirror-Touch Synesthesia

Does anyone else have this?

"Mirror touch synesthesia is a condition that causes a person to feel the sensations of being touched on the opposite side or part of their body when they see another person being touched. While there aren't yet specific diagnostic criteria, doctors can treat the condition as a sensory processing disorder."

I've dealt with this my whole life and it's not as benign as it sounds, especially for someone with other sensory issues. I've unfortunately gotten picked on a lot because other people apparently don't experience this, and they think I am overreacting when seeing someone else get touched or hurt makes me physically uncomfortable.
