can ptsd cause tics? frequently my body will randomly jolt and I can’t tell if there’s a connection between the two. sometimes it happens before, during, or after my flashbacks.

    I also have moments where it feels like nerves are misfiring and I'll jolt - I sum it up to nerve damage from stress

    I get jolts for various reasons, and I think some certainly tie into my PTSD. Especially if/when I've been reminded of said topic or certain triggers. It can be hard to deal with, sometimes my tics are painful or difficult for others to understand.

    Ptsd can cause stress. Stress can cause ticks.

    Yes. My mom and I both have PTSD. I don't experience many ticks, but when my mom is really triggered, she will shake and jerk. It also happens in her sleep.
