Welcome to HCM
He is just 18 and he had eye twitching about 3 weeks ago. He is also having complaints of rapid heart rate
, pressure on face and heaviness on head. These symptoms may be due to some anxiety disorder. You have mentioned twitches but I need more details to evaluate it as Tics of eye. In a number of Anxiety Disorders tics are also associated. If condition becomes severe I advise you to visit a good Psychiatrist
for expert opinion.
Medicines in low doses like Fluoxetine
, Sertaline, Escitalopram are very useful in anxiety. Other medicines like Propranolol
are used to control anxiety symptoms.
Other non pharmacological methods like Behavior Therapy are also used to control anxiety.
