    ANOTHER UPDATE... neurology appointment today #TardiveDyskinesia #TicDisorders #RestlessLegsSyndrome

    I hope this message finds you all well... and if it doesn't... sending good vibes your way!

    I just got back from a neurology appointment. It turns out I was misdiagnosed with Restless Legs Syndrome (I do not have it, but have been taking unnecessary medication for it) but I DO have a childhood tic disorder that is mostly in remission along with the more bothersome Tardive Dyskinesia.

    TD, for those that don't know, is caused by taking antipsychotic medications for long periods of time. It's relatively rare so if you're on antipsychotics please do not worry-- but I seem to be having symptoms of it.

    Luckily my TD is relatively mild but still bothersome regardless.... I am grateful to have found some answers and that I will be coming off the RLS medication. As for the TD, we are waiting for now on whether or not to add medication for that.

    Does anyone else here have Tardive Dyskinesia?

    Updates / CHECKING IN

    How is everyone doing?

    I have a personal update: if you haven't noticed, I changed my name and pronouns on here-- so I'll reintroduce myself:

    My name is Kaden and I use he/him or they/them pronouns. I struggle with mental illness and am neurodivergent. I am also overcoming a lot of trauma.

    Thank you for reading! I will also attach the link to my latest article about disability, as it is disability pride month! Do you identify as disabled?

    LASTLY: How are you tic disorders and comorbidities affecting you lately? I will be seeing a neurologist in a couple weeks (early August) to address my own issues

    I had a TMS consult today. Will be starting it in August for OCD! And off label C-PTSD as those two disorders are very intertwined for me. I did it for OCD and bipolar depression last year with success. So here’s to hoping it helps again!!
