Hey, I'm new to this site. I'm a 16 year old girl who's been having violent shaking in my upper torso for about three years. It's gotten a lot more severe in the past year, I get 100+ a day. I usually get these shakes when I'm around people that I want to impress or thinking about particularly stressful things. They used to be just during school, but then started happening when I am with friends, then when around my family. Now I get them at any point in the day, even alone, when I'm thinking about stressful things. The shaking is usually around my neck and shoulders, but sometimes my legs and arms jerk as well. I've fallen down before, or out of a chair that I'm sitting in. When it's a bigger one, my fingers sometimes flutter in my right hand.
I saw a doctor, they said that it could be myoclonic jerks but until I have an EEG they can't tell, and the next opening for an EEG is in a month and a half. It's already been two weeks and I'm going crazy trying to guess what it is. Even during these two weeks it's gotten worse. I don't want to self diagnose but I would love to have some sort of idea of what it could be instead of being completely in the dark. This is beginning to seriously affect my social life and my school work. I'm desperate for advice or answers, anything. Thanks for taking the time to read.
