Does anyone else pace around in circles?

I pace around all the time. Sometimes I get excited and pace around faster too! Does anyone else do that?

I pace back and forth in the house sometimes.

Not anymore. But I used to be very restless so went on bus journeys every day to feed my need for feeling like I’m moving.

You might have akathesia. If you feel an unnatural urge to move around and it doesn’t go away go ask.

Yes I’ll do this many times.
Especially since coming off Depakote.
With me it’s some mania.

Not around in small circles though.

Not in circles, I prefer back and forth. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
I managed to make it productive, now I listen to podcasts or read a book while I’m pacing.

Yes in the kitchen

I thought this was the abilify but think it’s a symptom because I get it occasionally.

Years ago, I used to pace back and forth and around the house in circles because of really bad akathisia due to AP’s. Now, my akathisia is more adequately controlled so I don’t pace anymore.
