This has been happening for about a little over 6 months and has been rapidly getting worse. Originally, it was just a slight thing, I would only do it while I was sitting or laying down and I would do it about 3-7 times a minute. Then about a month after, I started doing it about 5-11 times a minute. I thought it was a muscular version of what happens when you crack your fingers, i.e. how it becomes a habit. But now I'm considering its a Neurological problem.

When It started I felt like I was partially out of it, not in my zone, and I didn't really think much of it until lately. Now its not just partial, I'm almost completely not in control.

- I can't respond in a timely manner in a conversation, let alone respond to regular social
phrases (such as saying Have a Nice Day after someone says it to you, Or saying Good
Bye to someone after they say it to you).
- I've developed a slight stutter thats getting gradually worse.
- I become lost for words.
- My short Term Memory is shot
- I've become Manic-Depressive, Switching between the two Each Day.
(Manic on Monday, Depressed on Tuesday, Manic on Wednesday, etc.)

In addition, I'm up to flexing my leg 90-98 times a minute and now I'm doing it 1-3 times a minute on my other leg. This is Unbearable I need to find out what is wrong with me.

Additional Medical History:
- 15 yr Old Male
-Diagnosed with ADHD
-Been Prescribed Many Different ADHD Meds since I was 9. (At separate Times never more than one pill at a time)
