I have an anecdote for you, @ZombieMombie . I’ve obviously been in the psych realm for many years. I’ve seen lots of varying cases of TD, from mild to incapacitated and can barely breathe. My wife and I went to a nursing home to visit her sister. While I was standing in the lobby, I asked my wife if she could spot the people with TD (almost all off them had pill-rolling or orofacial grimacing and lip smacking). She couldn’t until I pointed them out to her. The point I’m trying to make is unless you have a trained eye, the average person won’t notice minor TD or will have just zero concept of what it is. It’s the folks in the field who can sniff it out.
Next time you see your psychiatrist, ask them to do an AIMS test on you (Abnormal Involuntary Movement Scale). Any pdoc worth his salt should be able to do it, and if not, I’d find a new doc, frankly. You’ll get scored but you won’t be told the score. Based off the findings, the doc may adjust your meds or give you others to help combat any issues that arise. The test is totally painless and easy. You just sit in a chair in an upright position and follow the doc’s directions. Takes about 2 minutes.
Forewarned is forearmed. Hope this helps.
