I hope I'm describing this properly - it's like your whole bottom lip/chin area wants to "chatter" up against your upper lip (just like the teeth do if you hold them close together). Especially if your lips are both fairly close together. If you hold your mouth wide open, it doesn't seem to happen.
dawiz wrote:Mark - are you still having that? I had a shot last week (tick-borne encephalitis) and a couple days later the jaw/lip trembling started. This thing drives me nuts - feels like my jaw is constantly moving when I'm at rest. I've had the teeth "chattering" when I move them close together for years. There's a slight trembling of the lips visible when I watch them closely (my wife doesn't see it) but the bad thing is that the jaws / lips seem to be moving all the time in short jerky moves, giving me a hard time falling asleep at night - last night it even woke me up. It's not a rhythmical tremor, it's more like a trembling in all directions - but also unlike the usual twitching I have everywhere else.
This thing is scaring the crap out of me as lip tremors seem to be typical for PD (and not much else).
Sorry - this one seemed to slip by me as I've been off the forum again for a while. Yes - I am getting this a lot again lately and I hate it. In the mornings when I get up, I really get the jaw/lip trembling thing. Always the worst when I am anxious and it just doesn't seem like it wants to go away. I get the exact same symptoms as you have described. I am seeing a movement disorder specialist in July as I worry very much about PD considering what my fingers have been doing lately so I will post more info once I have seen this neuro. It does seem to be quite common on this forum, though - that is the good part of it. I'm hypothyroid myself so this may be contributing to it.
