  • No honey, weird facial expressions aren't normal when starting to run. See if anyone can take a picture of you doing this. Tell your parents now.

  • It sounds like what I have. Its called dystonia, and there are severl types and variations. I used to get it if I stood up to fast, or started walkin from standing still. I used to do sports and it was especially bad at a start of a race and it would start in my feet and i would lose control of my face and jaw and then my hands would get rigid. That is a neurological thing and they don't really know the cause except that it is a lapse in brain waves or activity or something. Im not sure if that is it but it sounded kind of like what I used to get. Hope that helped. See a neurologist and mention that.

  • are you drinking enough water??? Try drinking more and see if that helps, if not, you need to get a good check up...don't put it off...the earlier you figure out what the problem is, the better your recovery...

  • Get checked for nutritional deficiencies - very common and often misdiagnosed. Magnesium, potassium, B5 come to mind. Visit http://www.1stholistic.com/Nutrition/hol_nutr-def-symptoms.htm See if anything fits your description, then get a good quality supplement at a healthfood store. Can't hurt and may really help. Best wishesDOM
