Possible tic: These are possibly tics.However, there are other neurologic issues that can also cause the movements you are describing. We can not diagnose these type of issues on this part of the HealthTap platform. I would strongly recommend that you contact your own physician to be examined.You may be able to start with a telemedicine visit with your physician or on HealthTap Prime if you have access to that.
