It seems insane, but I've only been referred to two psychiatrists in the NYC area. Dr.Daniel Williams is self-pay, and Dr. Mark Groves is on medical leave for another month and I can't even speak to anyone at his office.
I have been having severe episodes of jaw tremors that began after a crippling anxiety attack 15 months ago. I finally was diagnosed with psychogenic movement disorder at Columbia University Hospital this month. I've been taking valium to help stop them, but that is another problem now. Beth Israel ER wanted nothing to do with me today, and referred me to detox.
My current psychiatrist and social worker are clueless, and I need to change to a new treatment team. I've seen mention of inpatient type programs, and would strongly consider that even if it required travel.
The jaw tremors are really debilitating. I can brace the muscles and stop them, but it makes me anxious, makes me irritable, causes headaches. Most often recently, I first notice that I'm clenching my jaw. A paradox, an unconscious response to an unconscious response.
