      not sure
      Welcome to TT @Cillian. You are never alone here as we have been where you are. What caused your T? Perhaps you can describe your T in more detail. The first thing you need to do is to see a doctor/ent to rule out anything wrong with your ears, the sinus infection, the eustachian tube etc. If these are taken care of, then perhaps the T will not be as bad. Not sure about head movement, unless your T is somatic in nature due to neck muscle problem or TMJ. Your T being so new it may get better. Don't lose hope that you can regain your social life. But be prepared for some tough time initially. Read up the success stories to give you some insights and hope about your future. Also here is an excellent thread for new T sufferers from TT. It has step-by-step tips for you and it also links to ATA & BTA for you to learn more about T. The more you are educated about T, the less you fear it and less it will be intrusive.
