I feel completely uncomfortable until I do so, almost like an itch you have to scratch, but worse. I had a mild version of this when I was younger but it's gotten beyond distracting. I'm not trolling here. I don't have any other kinds of tics like that, but with shiny-paged books (like color prints) and even with my iPhone the urge torturously remains until I rub my phone on my forehead or between my temples. I don't know what it is or how to stop it and it makes me miserable when it happens! What is this craziness? Is there medicine for it or a cure? What causes it, any chemical imbalance?

Hi amd:

No need to apologize, at all! I used to have a very bad tic with clearing my throat, and yes, it is VERY distressing. I have read that it could be a form of OCD. Can I ask, are you diagnosed with anything? Are you on any meds right now? One of the safest meds I heard for tics is risperidone (Risperdal). I imagine the SRI's may possibly work, too.
