    Hi, so I suffer form bad fidgeting, and wanted to know what is the neurological basis of why we fidget. All I can find on google is that apperently its "good for you" trust me you wouldn't be saying that if your fidgeting was as bad as mine.

    So what causes fidgeting? I have anxiety so I guess that is why mine is so bad? But what actually happens i.e an action potential is initiated, then passed on to motor neurons etc etc?

    Also would working out help reduce it? Thanx.

    Depends, sometimes I jiggle my leg if I'm sitting down. Mostly out of boredom or if I want to get up and move around or if I'm restless tbh

    I don't think it's anything to worry about. I fidget when I'm concentrating.
