hi there, i am 16 years old and have had trouble with something since i was about ten years old. my family and even my family practice thinks this is some sort of joke because they tend to follow medical symptoms on an old school level. i cannot speak to a person for more then thirty seconds without rolling my eyes into the back of my head( like a quick spasm.) needless to say this has gotten me into trouble numerous times with teachers and other figures of authority but the fact of the matter is that i have no control over these sudden movements. i cannot even relieze when i do them because of how used to them i have become. it would be nice to put a name or reason behind this problem so i could show everyone that im not fibbing to anyone. thank you,

  • I have had this same problem since I was a child as well. Do you have any other tics? I also clear my throat and tweek my nose. Needless to say I was diagnosed with tourettes syndrome. I have tried some medications but none helped. I find the eye rolling is worse when I don't get enough sleep or my allergies are bothering me. I do often have to explain to people why my eyes are rolling all the time. People can certainly take it the wrong way.
