cause another person to feel unease or discomfort when they were previously feeling comfortable
 
Similar to “discomforting,” with “discomforting” implying that there wasn’t necessarily comfort to begin with, whereas “uncomforting” implies that the direct object was comfortable to begin with but then the subject caused that status to change.
