I Rock Back And Forth. What Does This Mean?

I'm twelve. I don't know how this happened or why. But for about since I was three, I've been doing this thing I simply called 'shaking my head' but seeing it hear I should considering it 'rocking'. I listen to music or turn the TV on so people don't hear me. But I will rock back and forth usually very fast and think of things. I have seizures and don't know if this would be related. It humiliates me to speak of it to other people, but close friends and family don't seem to do this. Is this bad? Will I grow out of it? Is this the reason for my seizures? Mental Health? I never do it in front of anybody like the others or put on headphones. I shake everything up above my knees and sometimes legs and feet. I don't fathom this..

I am a rocker also and have been since birth . I am 57 years old and still love my rocking chair. Some advice from a old timer. Read up on the Vestibular System . It is the part of your body involved in all movement and located in your ears. There is fluid that moves around as you move and connects to all your senses. If your doctor checks you out and finds a problem there is treatment for it. <br />
In my case I have no problem and lived a very active life (and still do) . I just feel comfortable rocking. I have a rocker at work, I carry a folding rocker when I travel, And usally wear out my home rocker before the warrenty is up. The point I'm trying to make is if there is not a medical problem enjoy the comfort of rocking and don't feel ashamed of it. There is nothing wrong with it. In fact it's great . I love it.<br />
But get your Vestibular System checked by a doctor that specializes in that area
