Neck spasms, teeth clenching/biting, head tick, and constant neck tension. This all started after a diving catch when I was 12. I am now 22.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I made a diving catch when I was 12 years old. Shortly after I experienced neck spasms and my head would twitch without me having any control over it. It’s a constant thing that happens almost every minute of every day. Some days it’s worse than others, and some days it’s not so bad, just tense. Over the years I’ve also gained this thing where I bite down on my teeth a lot and can’t help it. I know when my neck is ticking and when I am biting down on my teeth, but don’t have any control over it. It’s almost like the tension takes over and I can’t stop it from happening. I’ve been to many doctors in many states over the past few years, and no doctor has been able to find a cure, let alone a cause. It’s been a huge obstacle in my life, and I feel like a lab rat each time I go somewhere new because the doctors can’t figure out what it is, so I try all of these different things, yet nothing ever works. If y’all could please help me, I would be more grateful than y’all could ever imagine. It’s been 10 years of struggling with this, and I really want to overcome it.
