Does Anyone On Here Suffer From Tardive Dyskinesia?

Does Anyone On Here Suffer From Tardive Dyskinesia?

I’ve had weird uncontrollable movements for months that don’t show on my EEG. My seizures still happen often luckily they’re usually partials. But the spasms scare me, i’m always snapping my fingers without realizing and other weird things. So i was just curious if anyone suffered from this and had any knowledge on it because i may bring it up to my doctor. Nothing is being solved

Hopefully, you will have a good neurologist this time, so when you bring up the details you will be listened too and a conversation perhaps.

Make sure to print out and bring the document with you so you can validate the source.

Hoping and praying that you have a good or great neurologist this time.

I also agree with Randy
I had arm twitches on an off on a regular basis.
They would come and go every few months.
Since I am on Lamotrigine they have seemed to totally disappeared.

It could be the med you are on causing the uncontrollable movements.

Tardive dyskinesia (TD) is a disorder that involves involuntary movements. Tardive means delayed and dyskinesia means abnormal movement.
