Hello everyone I feel like I'm losing my mind. Stressing over the fact that I anxiety ticks. I noticed or think I'm doing repeated movements. This is driving me crazy along with my headaches😢 ever since I got them I feel like me acting slow and dumb. Advice! Thanks!

    Anxiety typically causes us to be hyper aware of ourselves. So it might be that you're so focused on these "repeated movements" that they appear worse than they are. You're not losing your mind, that much I can promise you. What sort of movements do you think you're repeating?

    It is all to do with your Anxiety

    Are the ticks noticable by other people or do you feel they are very slight.

    Hello Judi,

    When my aniexy begins to increase I do a number of things depending on how I'm feeling or what kinds of things are running through my mind from bringing my fingers to my neck to check my pulse to leg bouncing to teeth clacking, I believe these are things I'm doing to try and cope but end up making things worse at times since I'm doing these things constantly and only doing these things when I'm feeling anxious. There's nothing wrong with us, it might be bothering you because you only notice when your feeling stressed, I haven't had serious aniexty for long but that's what I think. I sorry if I don't offer much advice but I find when I get distracted these things decrease or cease, the difficult part if finding something to distract you ^ ^"

    Best of luck,
