Forehead and eye voluntary tick, obsessive compulsive disorder. Suggest?

Hi, I have a forehead and eye voluntary tick for over 40 years, it comes and goes. it gets worse when I am tired or I am in unfamiliar company. I am conscious of my eyelashes tangling together and I grimace to release it, resulting in obsessive compulsive disorder . I would love to have this problem resolved. I had relief from this with acupunture, but it comes back again, Paul

Hi there ~

Tic disorders are common and respond to small doses of antipsychotics like risperidone. Please consult a psychiatrist before you get on these medications. I hope this helped. Anti anxiety measures, yoga, dhyana, pranayama, asanas, regular physical exercise are all useful.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a great day !
