I’m not a hypochondriac by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, I’d say I’m one of those types of people who tend to pretend they don’t have a problem, even if I were missing several limbs and bleeding profusely. However, lately something is going on with me that I’m really, really worried about.
One of the medications my doctor gave me when my panic attacks first popped back up was Risperdal, but I never took it because of the fear of developing tardive dyskinesia. While Lexapro (the current medication I am on) isn’t a high risk for TD, I have developed a rather nasty twitch in my neck and I can’t help but worry it’s the medication.
While I’m sitting still, I all of a sudden get the urge to twist my head to the right. It’s an odd feeling and very disquieting as it’s involuntary and I can’t stop it. It only appears while I’m sitting down keeping my head very still (i.e. when I’m in front of a computer which is like 75% of my life or watching TV). So it might just be a pinched nerve.
Still, it’s a very, very, very odd sensation that is giving me the creeps.
