smiling uncontrolably for no reason

I dont know if this is the right thread, but I'll give it a shot. remember when I was four or five years old, something happened around the dinner table and I couldn't stop smiling. It continued for a long time, and became a regular nuissance at the tabl. my parents would frequently get on me about it. i don't know why I did it, I couldnt controll it. Throughout the rest of my life it continued off and on, usually upon making eye contact with people. well the past year it has gotten real bad. around almost everyone. I smile uncontrollably for no reason. I feel someones pulling wires from each side of my mouth and forcing me to have the hugest smile. I'm getting to a point where I am now trying to avoid people all together because it is so strange and creepy and empbarrasing. the more i try not to do it it happens. sometimes i have to walk away from a conversation because of it. what is wrong with me? I have always wondered, and does anyone else have this, or know of it? is it a syndrome, or a disorder? is there a name for it, or medication? It's getting really bad. PLEASE HELP.

Re: smiling uncontrolably for no reason

I know this is a common occurrence in Bell's Palsy. You might want to look into it, as I couldn't tell whether you fit the criteria, or not.
