Ask a professional!: Its important not to rush to conclusions, because fidgeting can be caused by many things: emotional difficulties, medical problems, social situations, changes in life, and many more. If fidgeting continues to be a problem, you might want to consult or even ask to be evaluated by a professional (neurologist, psychiatrist or psychologist).
