Tourettes?: This might be Tourettes from your description. It is a very special condition that may combine w/ some others but is always specific. There may be a variety of tics - sometimes verbalizations or sounds that may be troubling to social norms. It's really unusual to stop them on your own, but specialized therapy has been successful - often medication is employed too. Seek referral to experienced Dr.

Find out why, first: By definition, Tourette Syndrome & other tic disorders start before age 18. If your involuntary movements started at age 44, see your doctor to determine what type of movement disorder you have & what's causing it. You'll probably be sent to a neurologist for further evaluation. Check for family history of adult-onset movement disorder with behavioral changes.
