Tardive dyskinesia?

So here’s what my body is doing. When I’m resting I started making chewing movements with my mouth, I’m not aware that I’m doing it until I become aware, if that makes sense. I also been chewing while sleeping because I keep biting my tongue :stuck_out_tongue: is this tardive dyskinesia?

Possibly. Tardive dyskinesia is characterized by involuntary and abnormal movements of the jaw, lips and tongue, and the extremities. And usually you are not aware of it while it is happening.

Talk to you doctor immediately. In some cases it reverses itself when you quit your current medication, but it other cases it is permanent. There are medications to treat it but I don’t think they are 100% effective.

Thanks for the info @Headspark
