My friend said that twitching was a trait of Asperger's, so I was wondering how many of you twitch?
I twitch a lot.
Sorry for the lack of a detailed first post, not much to say. It's just a poll.

Yeah I do, I have a weird eye brow thing where I raise my eyebrows all the time, I've had some funny looks over it.

I rapidly slam my head against my left shoulder(it doesn't hurt).

My eye starts twitching sometimes, and my leg muscles sometimes, too. And I can't control it. It's really freaky... I showed it to my friend and she got creeped out as hell. I'm eating almost no sugar now, and it seems to have stopped.

Diagnosed simple motor tic. Mostly manifests itself as strong blinking or a twitch around the mouth. Occasionally my whole head jerks to the left. Gets mistaken for "making a face" all the time. On the plus side, nobody on the bus talks to me.

I only have this when I've been having caffeine.
A lot of my friend know I drink WAY too much coke, so yeah. I'm still twitching after a week of no coke though.

I twitch a lot. I shuffle my feet when I sit, which has led to two huge black marks in front of the couch. And my eyelids twitch, as do my leg muscles.

I used to involuntarily widen my eyes, or lift my eyebrows a lot, when in grade school. The kids, of course, made fun of me. They would nudge each other and stare, whenever I did it.

I have really active fingers when my mind is going full speed or if I get nervous. I'll start taping my fingers or drumming on something. Sometimes my feet will do it too, but mostly just my hands.

I twitch at times (mild Tourettes) and I get the occasional spasm.

Yeah I always have to have something repetitive to do with my hands. Usually I make rhythms by tapping on surfaces.

My body is like an orchestra of motions, my eyes twitching here, hands flapping there, legs stretching there and so on, without me consciously doing a thing. It's like my body has a mind of it's own. In fact, I have to consciously stop in when I'm in a public area.

That started happening to me a few years ago.....it was driving me nuts. So I looked it up on the Web and the advice was either Botox (supposed to work very well) or cut out caffeine (not supposed to work for all that many people). I didn't fancy Botox (can't afford it either), so I switched to decaffeinated tea and coffee, and it worked. It still happens very slightly now and again, but nothing like as much as it was doing.

Also there's one or two leg muscles that sometimes start to twitch all by themselves, but it's rare, and apart from it distracting me, it's not really a problem. Nobody can see it happening and it might even have gone away now I don't use caffeine any more. I soon forget about these little problems once I've been clear of them for a day or two.
