at this time i:
shake my head from side to side for no aparent reason
stretch the muscles in my jaw (while shaking my head)
put pressure on my eyeballs with my eyelids and then eye widening
contorting my eyebrows
eyes looking in random directions
sniff and clear my throughtthis is really embarasing and i cant think of any cause for it (like stress or anything)
can you please help me and tell me how to get rid of it.
i have done some research about it (which has not been any help)and ive read that it can be comon with about 8-10 year olds ... which i am not.

  • Robb,You need to go to a neurologist. Tic's may or may not be caused by Tourette's syndrome and symptoms can become worse. No matter what the cause, this is not normal and should be looked into asap with a neurologist. Perhaps there is a more simple answer, but I would suggest seeing a doctor.http://www.minddisorders.com/Py-Z/Tic-disorders.html
