Keeping off drugs and strange movement of cheeks

Resolved Question:

Iam 27 yars

befor 7 y i have Been taking Drugs (pills Kabtajohn )

For a period of two years and then left it

Now iam good but some thing still happing to me

after i left it , whene I meet with people laving or laugh with them, I feel movement in my cheeks

The situation was repeated to me with more people

It made me avoid people

Dr. When you meet him Said

iam suffering from social phobia

But I don't think that I have a social phobia

I think the problem with nerves, I'm not afraid of meeting people there in the past and now

Only problem is I could not find what caused the movement of my cheeks when emotion or embarrassment or laugh because I took previously drugs

What do you think of tests

Thank you for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com.

I have noted your symptoms. Drugs may adversely affect the brain and nerves.

Investigations required to study these effects would be MRI brain and nerve conduction studies.

In addition, there may be an added component of anxiety, which can be reduced with anxiolytic medications such as alprazolam or clonazepam.

I hope it helps. Please feel free to get back if you have any more queries.

Best wishes,
