Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hi there ,
Welcome to Just answer !
Well, it seems like you are having what is called as Tic / Tic disorder , which is characterized by sudden , rapid , repetitive , purposeless involuntary movement/s or sounds . And this tic may have taken a form of a Compulsive habit as you find it as a relaxation act , which is characterisctic of a compulsion.
These tics are very common ,and usually do not require any treatment , as they get corrected by self regulation , but the problem arises when the tics become harmful to one's health , like it is happening in your case , as you have been inuring yourself due to this tic habit.
So, i suggest that you consult a psychologist and get yourself evaluated for tic disorder and on confirmation the psychologist shall be starting you on psychotherapy ( Counseling ) in the form of Habit reversal training ( HRT ) , which would help you to control this habit and overcome it without letting it cause any further damage and disfigurement to your body.
