I am a 38 year old male and have been living with facial, neck, shoulder tics since I was 7/8 years of age. I also have poor memory, back/neck pain, am easily agitated, am lethargic and have also been diagnosed as hypo thyroid and hypogonadism. The testosterone and thyroid meds have not helped me feel better. I tend to think negatively although ironically I am optimistic that there is hope for me. Professionally I am successful in a creative field that I enjoy. Personally, I am not happy with my development.
I have a stoic affect that also makes me unapproachable by people. I am very socially withdrawn and find it very difficult to make plans with people or schedule appointments more than same day and no more than a week in advance. Can't commit to anything.
I don't believe that depression is the root cause of this.
It is possible that I have poststreptococcal glomerulnephritis (PANDAS) I have taken the blood test for this as well as Celiac's Disease and will learn the results tomorrow.
Anyone have any insights?
Thanks so much! :)
