I noticed during my psychotic episode I was highly sensitive to other people’s body language, and I would shudder and jerk back like basically flinching if someone was walking towards me. Or if somebody moved I would spasm. When I was sitting in my bedroom and could hear people talking loudly across the street I was literally spasming and shaking uncontrollably. Have any of you experienced motor symptoms of schizophrenia?
Body language was one of my obsessions in the prodromal days, I believed I could read it. I was very concerned with it, within reason. I could push that delusion aside and function most of the time.
I did that most of my entire life: push delusions aside in order to function in spite of them. I can really relate to that statement.
I flinch and gasp a lot when I think something bad might happen. I do it waaaaay more than is reasonable.
I’m also super sensitive to light and sound. I always have been, but it got a lot worse after I got sz.
I flinch from sudden movements but that’s from ptsd
I have this too and it pisses me off. I can’t sit still for some reason. Or even lie down. I shake and spasm all the time. Has anyone have this and know how to minimize it?
I had a delusion a demon was stuck inside me so I was rolling and shaking on the floor for several hours cuz it was controlling me.
My parents thought I was nuts… Hmmmmm
My motor symptoms are mostly pacing the floor and rocking. But haven’t done that for a while as I’ve been quite well these last months.
Ptsd of some sort here too. Even a darn door opening will startle me.
That’s interesting. I don’t really have any experience with that, short of what I explained above. Maybe talk to your doctor? I’m sorry I’m not much help.
It’s not a problem, I definitely will. I’m just clarifying my post because I didn’t really make much sense .
there is a study whick links it to vitamin b6 defeciency and i beleive the herb centella asiatica at around 5g mixed with one glass milk must be given for around 45 days this was suggested to me . i will try it and let you know it is also related to antibodies also i beileive.
try checking your calcium magnesium and manganese levels .aslo check whether you have any antibodies.(thyroid related). try sleeping early at around 8:30 pm .quality sleep should help with motor symptoms
That;s a accurate description.I feel similar, especially the part about jerking and have movements over and over.
