Question Autism or not??

I flap my hands alot, I used to do it when I got excited but I stopped because people would laugh at me so now I just do it when I stare at something or daydream. I flap my hands so much I don't even realize i'm doing it. I sometimes make humming sounds or other little noises while doing it. I do it when i'm daydreaming, or when listening to music. I've done this for my entire life (i'm a teenager) and don't know why i have a urge to do it. Sometimes i'll look closely at the letters I've typed and flap my arms, or when looking at a picture. I'm also pretty shy, and really want to know whats wrong but my mom says nothings wrong and im being over reactive. Am i crazy or is this something i should worry about??

Re: Autism or not??

You flap your hands at exciting things or just in general? If something makes you truly happy do tend to feel to flap? I know this is a funny question but, do you walk on your toes v/s ball of foot to toes? Do you enjoy seeing things repeatedly? The most important question if you do go to school are you in some kind of integration class?

Re: Autism or not??

I have three boys on the spectrum. My oldest (now 18) has always been a big hand flapper. I asked him why once, and he told me, "I don't know. I like it." I don't think he does it in public, and I don't think he realizes he is even doing it. He does it a bunch when he plays his video games. My 11 year old is also a big hand flapper....mostly when he is excited. He makes some kind of odd sound when he does it.
