Tourrette's can cause this.

But involuntary movements at or around bedtime are normal for a lot of people.

Sleepwalking might be a cause for your symptoms too.

Welcome. Politics is one of my current interests. I am also dealing with some anxiety issues. I used to work in a store. You are so lucky that you don't have to fill out return slips. PDD-NOS is closely related to autism. I know someone who was diagnosed with it first as a young child, then later re...

You know that kid had to be autistic, given how well he could strum them strings!

Just kidding.

As my anxiety has increased, my IQ has decreased (at least from online tests). I have really felt my attention span take a hit, to the point where if it were not for the social anxiety, I might be diagnosable with ADD. IQ based on ACT score: 140+. IQ tested (online) while relaxed but not really, rea...

Now, concerning auties as opposed to aspies, I have noticed that auties (low and mid functioning) look "stoned"--their eyes just look tired.

I think I may have noticed this too. I saw an article online recently (I can't remember where, sorry) that talked about children with a deletion of a particular gene in their DNA who met together in person and their parents noticed a strong resemblance between them. Autistic behavior was one side ef...

The cosmic radiation that can cause mutations is not the radiation that can be trapped by greenhouse gasses. That is a good point, one which I had thought of myself. The fact is that more cosmic waves of some type and wavelength ARE being trapped. My consideration for the above hypothesis was that ...

So many things are being attributed to global warming these days. In particular, the increase in the number of devastating hurricanes and tornadoes. Now, I present a theory for the rise in autism rates that is based on an increase in the amount of cosmic radiation due to a man-made increase of the g...

I'm currently undecided on my major, as a junior in college. I need to make up my mind soon. One option I am looking at is accounting. Accounting has to do with a lot of numbers and close attention to detail. I'm not brilliant at math, but I can do the attention to detail. However, accounting is a b...

I decided not to take the second dose.

Today, I have experienced from mild withdrawals, but comparable to those I had while getting off St. John's wort, which I had been taking for a couple of months.

Thanks for the replies so far. :) Ironically, this worrying that I have over what medicine to take may be a manifestation of OCD in itself. But if I am putting a chemical in my body by choice and I have a choice over what chemical it is, based on the given side effects, can not I worry over that? I ...
