Do you have a tremor, tick, or twitch? Neurological soft-signs are muscle control problems which indicate minor brain dysfunction and are associated with anxiety disorders.

Yea if you have extreme sleep deprivation that's probably a possible cause. But stress and caffeen set off motor control problems in people with neurological dysfunction.

I did not know this. I've always had this thing with my neck where I'll get a chill and have to snap my neck and **** my head in a rather profound way.

Of course I'm able to control this in public for the most part. I'll still get the chill but I'm able to contain the ****ing of my head. I'm noticing it not happening as much now. Sometimes it happens and I don't even really take note of it afterwards because I'm so use to it.

I've just been worried that it's an onset of Parkinson's.

My eye lids as well as tissue all around my eye twitch, and muscles on the side of my nostril twitch. And kinda like Aiyieee with the neck but no chill, and I just get some viscious cracks out of it multiple times throughout the day, prolly from being tense though.... I drink no caffine; dont think its good for people.

I have a very slight tremor in my hands, it's a side effect of SSRIs and I'm taking Zoloft.

Not too often, but yes. But I don't have enough sleep, I'm stressed as heck and drink a lot of coffee, maybe that's the cause?

In some situations I freeze and my neck goes really stiff. My head can start to shake or at least feel like it's shaking. I'm extremely self conscious about it. My hands shake too especially when I'm eating in a restaurant but I'm more worried about the head shaking problem. On the interent it's called essential tremor.

It's just proof that we have irreversible damage. Something is broken. That's what causes the neurological crap. Can't fix it. We're doomed...

So as I suspected and as the literature says, people with anxiety disorders generaly display neurological soft-signs (motor control problems).

I hope this assauges any doubts that the underlying problem with anxiety disorders is neurological disfunction. Specificaly problems in the cingulate and amygdala which control thought transition and anxiety.

Yes, i've got loads and have had them for 20 odd years, since I was a kid. Reading up on it recently I'm nearly certain it is tourettes. Tourettes is found along with OCD, ADD, ADHD and anxiety disorders.

My main one is a head tic, but at the moment I'm driving myself mad clicking my ears. Over the years I've had one like a yawn, a face stretching one and blinking and winking ones. The worst one I ever had was a breathing one.

On the phonic side mine are mainly throat noises like clicking and croaking, but I also have some sniffing and coughing / throat clearing ones.

Hmmmm.....that brings something else to mind. I also have this ear thing where I continuously pop my right ear all day. It's a habit I've been hoping to break for years now.

It started when I was young. I thought it was an ear infection and went on the regimen only to find out years later what popping your ears was and that it wasn't an infection at all. I just always feel it's stuffed and I must pop it all the time. It involves opening my mouth and moving my jaw in a half circular motion from the left and down and back up to the right.

And when I wore my glasses I'd do this face thing where I'd scrunch up the right side and now I'm just becoming aware of this squinting thing that I do with my right eye. I have to remind myself to unclench it.

People have told me, "Why are you looking at me like I don't belong here?".

Haha. Now I know what they meant. I had no idea.

sometimes my chest, opposite side of my heart, twitches. usually when i'm trying to sleep, because that's when i notice it the most, probably. last night was odd, i keep waking up every friggin thirty seconds, thinking i couldn't breathe. very strange. it was probably just because i always think i'm going to stop breathing while i sleep and now that i've scared myself so much by it, even my unconscious self is freaking out about it. ****.
but my eye has been twitching constantly and yesterday i couldn't stop shaking for the life of me. tremors, i believe. pretty odd.
