This year I began college and there were many events that had began to make me feel much more nervous and anxious. As I began getting more anxious, I started to get the typical physical anxious symptoms such as racing heart, nausea, difficultly to breathe, but there was a peak of my anxious where I began to tense up my neck, and then my head would start twitching/jerking.
Although I do not really get any of the other symptoms anymore, I now notice that the twitching/jerking of my head is getting a lot worse. I used to only get it in a classroom where I felt very anxious, but now I worry in all of my classes that I will have a jerk or a twitch, which further causes it to happen. And now I feel like it has gotten even worse because I now get it when I am around some friends, and now it has become my constant worry to not twitch or jerk my head, and I even get it when I am by myself.
Does anyone else go through this or know how to prevent it? I am considering medication such as beta blockers, although I really didn't want to go this route, but I have seen a psychologist which did help me a little so I plan to continue seeing him. I am just so tired of having this constant anxiety from trying to prevent me from having these twitches.
