I have suffered with peculiar movements for years now. I have been to Boston and New York City and the National Institute of Health only hearing you have a Psychogenic movement disorder. I knew that wasn’t so because it was triggered by touch usually around my right shoulder, trapezius muscle area. It started after my second concussion and was just in my right shoulder, arm, and hand. After my third concussion, it went body wide. The contractures are painful and last a long time rendering me incapable of moving. I went to an appt with Core Therapy where PTs use manual therapy. When my body started very quick jerking I asked what he thought it was. He told me my nerves were hyperactive. A short while later while working on my neck and right shoulder area everything stiffened in position, my right hand in a claw position. The contractures went down my whole right side. Again I asked for an explanation. He said my nerves were super sensitive. He felt they could be calmed but it will be along, slow process. I looked up info – http://www.keystonensc.com/downloads/epa-nerve-hypersensitivity-syndromes.pdf and after reading that I went to -https://naturalsolutionsforahealthyyou.com/using-diet-to-balance-the-sympathetic-and-parasympathetic-nervous-systems-part-2-of-3/
Here’s a good explanation if you have been told like me you have dysautonomia or autonomic dysfunction – https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/symptoms-overactive-sympathetic-nervous-system-you-headed-chad-oler/
Reading all this has made me hopeful that with their help at Core Therapy I will make some forward progress no matter how slow.
