Hi all,
I have previously posted this thread in regard to a involuntary sniffing problem I have been suffering from.

as stated in the post, I thought that it was worse after heavy drinking, however as it has been so bad, I have stopped drinking for almost a month now and to be honest it has not really improved the situation, it is only slightly better than when I was drinking which makes me think that alcohol is not the real problem.
I am wondering now if it is a stress related muscular problem, I have read that stress related muscular problems are not uncommon.
I have noticed it is no where as bad when I am relaxing on the weekend but comes back during the work week.
I dont really feel that I am stressed but maybe my body is feeling stressed.
my question is: how do I get diagnosed for a stress related muscular disorder?
should I get referred to a Neurologist?
could it be a non stress related muscular disorder?
are there test that can be done to diagnose this?
I have read that they can prescribe muscle relaxant drugs to ease this type of problem.
any advice would be appreciated.
