so like... does anyone else's tics just stop for a few months and spontaneously just come back after all that time??
hi! i struggle with a tic disorder and the tics seem to be getting worse. does anyone have any coping mechanisms to help with calming them down? i keep having tic attacks and it's becoming exhausting to deal with.
There's a tic I have where I would move my neck in a specific way and cause it to pop on one side. If I don't pop it, I will continue violently shaking my neck until I do. I've noticed that ever since this started my shoulders and neck have been hurting very badly. My shoulders are now uneven. Does my tic have to do with my shoulders being uneven? Is my tic changing my body?
A few days ago, I started having these neck jerks. They typically happen in little episodes, for example once it starts jerking it'll get more intense until it calms down, then I go about my day until it starts again maybe a few hours later. It doesn't greatly impact my day to day life so far, but I'm seeking more knowledge on it since I haven't had these before. They *sound* like tics. I can try to suppress them, but then my upper spine feels itchy and my hands and feet start twitching. I sort of worry that I'm faking, because when I don't think about them they don't happen and when I do, they do, but I also genuinely cannot control them and they are causing me pain. I guess my main questions are: Does this sound like tics? What are the different causes of tics? What should I do about this going forward?
how do I hide facial tics in public? those are my most common ones, and in my school we don't wear masks anymore. I don't want to be known as the tic kid.
I started having periodic tics in July of 2021, and near the end of December they became constant and haven't stopped. They've also progressed very quickly. Is a quick/sudden progression a normal thing for tics?
anyone ever get severe pain from your tics? wondering because i had a kind of tension pain in my arm today and the only thing i could think of that could’ve caused it were maybe my tics making my muscles seize up
i’ve already talked ab this on another post, but people with tics, have y’all heard about the “tic pandemic” and tik-tok supposedly being the culprit i want to know if more people also have experience with this
