Hey ya'll. I just started dealing with anxiety stuff a few years ago, and two years ago, I developed vocal and motor tics. I am an adult: A middle aged adult, and this new addition to my life is frustrating to say the least. My vocal tics range from short sentences to barking to hooting and screeching like a monkey. Physically I have a strong diaphragmatic tic (that usually results in a verbal tic) and lots of facial tics and sometimes ye old head jerking backwards thing.
My Psych MD wants me to take Haldol or Risperdal (sp?) but they both make me sleepy, fuzzy and fat(her).
I would love to meet/chat with others with this stuff and I would love some advice as to how other people handle it, suggestions for natural treatments, etc.
Thank you very much!
