Head shakes uncontrollably while speaking in groups
Over the past 3-4 years, I have been plagued by uncontrollable shaking of my head while speaking to groups or speaking to important people (job interviews, etc.). Along with this, I have some type of twitch in my neck. The twitch is voluntary, but if I choose not to twist or jerk my neck that is all that I will think about until I do it......so I end up twisting my neck to alleviate this.
I have been going to a psychologist and he has me taking Zoloft along with Buspirone (or Buspar). This has seemed to help a little with the shaking when speaking to groups or giving presentations. No help with the neck twitching problem.
I really don't understand what is going on and it has totally messed up my life. When doctors hear of the head shaking uncontrollably while speaking to a number of people they automatically throw out the anxiety thing......this doesn't seem to add up with me because I honestly couldn't care less what others think of me. Anyway, I'd appreciate any help that you may be able to give.
