See Your Doctor Now: Your symptoms suggest a movement disorder; much info is needed to formulate a diagnosis. Specific criteria must be met to diagnose Tics. "Twitch" is a non-specific term w/ many interpretations. Diagnosis is complex; thorough medical history/physical exam, direct observation of your movements is required. Causes are many: genetic, neurologic, infectious & more. See doctor now for proper evaluation.
