I have strong head and neck tremors when people look at me, when I in public, when I am in class and the teacher look at me my head shakes so bad to left and right, my head shakes when I am in class and when I hear noises (specially loud noises) make my head twist fast left and right and I get super tense and paranoid because I can't stop thinking people are looking at me shaking my head like a insane, I feel like I will die at the moment of the head shakes and I feel I going to pass out and going crazy because people see this, I don't know what to do anymore, this SSRIs, SNRIs, benzodiazepine, suplements, meditation, deep breathing, nothing helps my situation I don't want to leave my house, I wan't to die because I can't even sit in a **** of a chair in a **** of a classroom and pay atention because everyday I feel i going insane in every place that has people, I see everybody living normally without this head shakes of social phobia and I can't just leave my ******* house, I feel my life is a Joke, in the past a had hope but I have this head shaking for like 10 years and my life is a ****, and know I pray to god everyday for me to die, I just want to die I don't have more energy for this **** life, this head tremors are the worst thing in the word I literally prefer to get shooted at the stomach everyday to live with this head tremors in social situations, I just wanna tell if anybody is reading this, if you are please listen this, be greatful for your life even if you have social anxiety because the day you have this head/neck tremors you will, and I tell for sure, you will want to die I promise you, this **** ****** my life I can't be normal, you should be thankful for your life because I, I just came to this life to be a joke and to get ****** in the ass everyday while I see everybody being able to live in peace, look, I have 24 years and never kissed a girl because of my severe social anxiety, I didn't had luck in this life. This **** of head shaking defeated me and I hope god or life give me the misericordy shoot and I die soon.

HS, sorry to hear about your suffering. I started experiencing similar, but less severe, symptoms a couple years back. I get dizziness & pressure behind my eyes in lots of public, crowded places. It does suck, & honestly makes no sense..
I hope u keep fighting, maybe experiment with some new, different therapists or meds (?) I've found that exercise helps me get my system right.. I'll take long bike rides that help me sleep good, get my system relaxed, and probably help my social confidence in some respects..
I'm rooting & praying for u..

Wow very sorry for your suffering but i am SO glad you posted and just to hear that i am not the only one who has this! Please try not to let it depress you so much, and it may help to know that there are others like us - i know that makes me feel a lot better when these symptoms flare up (i just wish there were more support groups around to meet other people with these and other anxiety issues because i think that would be very beneficial to us). I got the head/neck tremors (always accompanied with the uncontrollable hand tremors!) before and during any public speaking, attending meetings, even small social gatherings, especially when i had to write notes or sign paperwork in front of anyone. The weirdest thing to me was that the head tremors always happened while sitting in the Barber’s chair for a simple haircut! Sometimes i would have to leave unexpectedly or avoid these situations and reschedule them. It was driving me crazy because i knew there was no real reason for it, but i had absolutely no control over it. This, along with other anxiety issues, has plagued my life for decades, and held me back greatly in work, socialization, even ruined my aspirations as a semi-pro musician because it made me stop playing guitar in public (and i was/am still pretty damn good!) So after avoiding medications for nearly 20 years of struggling with symptoms, i met an understanding Doctor who suggested Beta-Blockers (Inderal / Propranonol) - a blood pressure med, and let me tell you, they changed my life - they actually work and stop those awful tremors! I still have the anxiety but it helps so much to have a calm steady hand (and head). I am new here too (this is my first post but your story motivated me) but i just wanted to reassure you that other people have experienced this exact thing and that there are ways that you CAN beat this if you discuss with your doctor and think positive :)
