Twitching

Recommended Posts

Is twitching normal?. And does it develop when your older or is it always there. I always thought negatively and had dangerous thoughts but I thought they were normal then, now that I know my condition im realizing my thoughts can be wrong so now my body or hands mostly react to those thoughts subtly.

Some occasional twitching is normal, but if it is happening a lot to the extent that you can't control it and it impedes your functioning, then it could be Tourettes. It's possible for a person the have Tourettes and for it to be dormant, or suppressed for years, and then become aparent at a later stage. Twitching can be worsened by anxiety. If it is becoming a problem, then you should see a doctor.

@Fighter101 I don't know about the topic of the twitching, but I get twitching in my eyes sometimes when I'm significantly stressed. Either sleep deprived or just stress on its own. Then when stress levels are reduced, it goes away.

I know that coming to terms with the condition, learning that there's a name for something you've had your entire life, can take a while. I know it took me a while, like more than a year to come to terms with it, that I'm autistic and that there's nothing wrong with being the way that I am.

Sorry I can't offer much help regarding the subject, but I hope you figure out what's going on. I agree with @Nesf that if it continues to be a problem you should see a doctor.
