    I don't know if this is Tourette's or something else entirely?
    But there are times when I feel like this weird shiver-like? Feeling and a strong head twitch, my hands/fingers twitch fairly often, and my legs spasm a bit as well, shrug thing in one shoulder. Thereís also this really strange noise that Iíve made a few times every day for the past 2-3 years, if I try to suppress it it becomes painful and it feels like my throat is closing up. I get asked constantly if Iím okay, or if I have to go to the hospital.

    I was watching some tourette's documentaries today and I suddenly had a fear that it might be whatís wrong with me.
    Thereís not really one thing that happens constantly throughout the day, but itís usually a mixture of several different things. Some answers to this would be greatly appreciated! Iíve been wondering about it for a long time.

    My symptoms have been getting worse.

    If you have a neurological condition, which it sounds like, no amount of description online is going to get you diagnosed, LOL! There are many conditions that could fit what you are going through, including the most common, epilepsy.
    THE SOONER YOU SEE A DOCTOR, THE BETTER.
    Just an EEG for starters will tell a lot.
    So.... what is stopping you from doing so?

    I wasn't seeking a diagnosis. I also know for a fact that I don't have epilepsy.
    I'm calling my doctor tomorrow, I guess we'll see.

    JordiC, symptoms mean little in the context of your entire person (age, gender, weight, diet, health history, family history, other conditions, OTHER CONDITIONS ALREADY RULED OUT BY DOCTORS, medications and supplements, and where in the world you were raised or are now). Until you really understand that, please stop asking people online.
