I have a problem and I don't really know what it would be classified as.. I think it may be tourettes.
As of now i'm 19, but I remember this problem happening as early as when I was in grade 6.
There is basically 3 things that I do:
-I ***k my head
-I make this grunting noise
-I do this outward sniff thing (I blow air out of my nose)
All of these things I wouldn't call them twitches because I can control it if I really try. I think it's more of a nerve thing but it's really hard for me not to do. It's really weird because sometimes I go months without doing any of these things. The grunting noises I haven't done for years.. I think i'm over that. However I do the outwards sniff thing and neck ***k a lot lately and it's really bugging me because people notice me jerking my head.
When someone asks me why i'm jerking my head it makes me do it even more. It's kind of mental, but sometimes I ***k my head purposely and try not to get caught. Like say if someone is coming to my room and I hear their footsteps I usually ***k my head constantly because of the "risk" of getting caught, if that makes any sense. I think it's a really big nerve problem... Also when i'm playing basketball and get into the game I ***k my head a lot. It's life when I get exited I ***k my head. Like when I hear someone walking my way I get exited and ***k my head.. My outward sniff thing I don't do as much.. the head ***k is the main problem. It's depressing me because I can't imagine how I would live a happy life if every time I get exited I look like a freak. Like if I have intercourse and am exited i'll probably be jerking my head..
Can anyone relate? Can anyone tell me what my problem is? Is there some kind of over the counter meds I can buy?
