There was a large-ish (6.9) earthquake in my area on Wednesday. Since then, I've felt a number of "phantom" earthquakes (along with a number of real aftershocks). Is there anything I can do to stop feeling the "phantom" quakes?

The buildings here were all built to withstand significant seismic activity, as we're right on the ring of fire, so I'm not super concerned. There were no injuries or significant damage. The actual experience of the earthquake was somewhat scary, but really not bad. I just keep feeling movement that I'm pretty sure is not real, and I'd like to not.
