Conservatively: Nervous habits are common. Many normal people clear the throat, rub the nose, toss the head, blink the eyes in a recurrent and nervous manner. Such movements are often called tics. Most persons can suppress these habits during social settings. If they become severe and disruptive, strong tranquilizers may be necessary. Medications should be avoided if possible.
