    For the last year I've had random shivers where I feel I have to vocalise and jerk my shoulders. Its like an itch or shiver down the spine, and like a sneeze it feels better when you give into it.

    Most people have heard the colloquism "somebody walking over your grave" which is a similar feeling. I was jsut wondering if there was a medical name for these none temperature related shivers.

    I've always just put it down to anxiety or stress, or the body just feels it needs to get into a more comfortable position (like stretching when you yawn) etc. Is this the case?

    Well it isn't likely to be Tourette's Syndrome if it's only started in the last year, as that has childhood onset as far as I know.
    And I guess that's the condition you'd be most worried about?
