I have a few of the symptoms...what does that mean?

I looked at the checklist that was provided on this website. I checked a few of the symptoms and wonder if I have a sensory processing disorder or is it just sensory preferences. The symptoms I checked on the checklist were:

**bothered by clothes; certain materials, tags, seams, pantyhose, ties, belts, turtlenecks, have to wear shorts, skirts, or pants exclusively, etc. (I cannot wear any tight fitting clothes/shoes- unfortunately this includes undergarments- as a woman, this is hard...)

**excessively ticklish

**__ distressed by others touching you; would rather be the "toucher" than the "touchee", difficulty "snuggling" with your partner (the snuggling part)

**often touching and twisting your own hair

**frequently get car sick, air sick, motion sick

**difficulty eating foods with mixed textures, or one particular texture

**prefer very bland foods, dislike anything spicy

**love to sleep with multiple or heavy blankets on top of you

**cracks knuckles often

**notice and bothered by noises other people do not seem bothered by... clocks, refrigerators, fans, people talking, outdoor construction, etc. (noises at night- need it quiet- ex. can hear when fan is clicking)

Sometimes I feel like I am the only one that feels this way.
