I was having a video chat with a friend and as soon as she saw me she flipped out and said I looked like I was experiencing dyskinesia. She’s familiar with it from her own experience and watching film clips of patients in ab psych class. She said my face was “mask like”, and my expression shifted oddly. And she also said I sounded kind of slurred and incoherent.
Nobody else has ever told me anything like this. Now few people know I’m taking an AP, but I still think someone else would’ve noticed by now. Can dyskinesia be intermittent? Should I take this seriously?
I’ve been on Risperdal for 20 years, but off and on. I don’t think Risperdal is supposed to cause TD, so I’m a little dubious. I haven’t called my pdoc yet because I don’t to start a ■■■■ storm, nor do I want to miss any work.
Any suggestions about what I should do? Does anyone have any Youtube clips I could look at to see if they match my expressions?
