Those suffering from tardive dyskinesia display repetitive, involuntary, purposeless movements. Typical signs include (for a more complete list of symptoms and side effects, please click here):

Fine, worm-like movements of the tongue
Lip smacking
Chewing or sucking movements
Grimacing (making faces)
Puckering or pursing the lips
Tongue protrusion
Rapid eye blinking

While these symptoms involve the face, some TD victims may also show uncontrolled movements of the arms, legs and body. The National Institutes of Health says it may even appear that someone with TD “is playing an invisible guitar or piano.”
