    I don't really have a nervous tick but after and/or when I have a flashback, I tend to be on high-guard or high alert

    I have nervous ticks where my shoulder shakes on its own or my head starts shaking. Sometimes my fingers curl in

  • Acacia


    I rock, like back and forth or side to side wherever im sitting when distressed or to stim

    The more we have been unmasking the more we have been having tics, they will get more pronounced when we are anxious or if there is a startling noise or something but not sure about with flash backs cause we tend to just kinda freeze completely…

    I have nervous ticks a lot, not sure if it’s associated with my adhd too. I get irritated at myself which only makes it worse

    I have tons! They might relate to a few problems I have but I definitely have them

    No ticks. My muscles twitch sometimes when I’m stressed or jumpy but not with flashbacks. I used to wiggle my leg back and forth and rub a fidget stone, when I had nervous ticks as a child

    In a middle of a PTSD caused panic attack I twitch a lot. Also say one phrase over and over

    I have nervous ticks and my Dr gave me medication. I only use it sparingly because of work but it helps some. I try to distract myself
