I’m not sure if this is the right way to put it, but I often wonder if other people have similar experiences with anxious tics.
I don’t want to get too off-track, but a little background from me is that I’ve been previously diagnosed with a few mental health issues, none of which are a current problem. During a couple rough bouts of psychosis, the first of which had a grand mal seizure thrown into the mix, I was put on a lot of different meds.
I’ve been happily off of them for a couple of years now (not to encourage anyone that they need to do the same, they were just no longer necessary in my case). But since then, my anxiety has developed tremendously. It was always an issue, but all of the medications were kind of numbing. None of them were for anxiety. Sometimes I think the combination of them may have altered my chemistry a bit, but I don’t know if that’s possible.
I’ve developed some tics and more intense physical symptoms when I’m anxious. The usual symptoms for me can be a tight chest, rapid heartbeat, sweating/feeling really hot, stomach pain, etc when I’m out in public. If I’m by myself, though, my neck and shoulders might tense up more and I sometimes shake my head quickly. I also tend to fidget with my hands and sometime I do it really quickly by mistake around others, which I’m sure freaks them out lol. I can’t think of them all now, but those two are common. If anyone can relate or wants to share anything, please feel free! Thank you for reading!
