Tongue twitching 2 days help me
« on: July 12, 2014, 01:07:55 PM »
I have health anxiety and the other day during one of my episodes I was sticking my tongue hard to the left and then hard to the right in the mirror because I noticed a small dent on the left side of my tongue. Anyway, two days ago, my tongue hurts because of the checking behavior from the day before, and I look at it in the mirror and notice that there's this one spot that won't stop flickering--denting in and out. Since then I've been in a constant nightmare. I keep imagining my tongue goes to the left (the end of it kind of does) and the flickering won't stop. It doesn't flicker when at rest in my mouth, nor when completely extended but when halfway extended this one spot won't stop fasciculating. And it's a fasciculation. Someone (Matt?) posted a video of his tongue doing it and mine does that almost nonstop. What do Ido? I'm losing my mind.

Partially sticking out your tongue and having a portion twitch is normal.

Don't google and stay off the Als forums or you will go down a rabbit hole of horror. My tongue is not perfectly straight and it definitely wiggles when I stick it out, especially when I am nervous! I've put my tongue through so much ridiculous testing fearing ALS and it just makes everything worse.
