Hi this is Kitt and Welcome to HealingWell and the A & P forum.  Yes nail biting or picking is a sign of anxiety.  I would go with your therapist on this one.  What other sx do you have?

Again a warm welcome. :-)

Welcome to HW
Many ppl have some tendencies such as you have or they twist hair and different things

I wpould also ask your therapist about this as well as when you get to gpoing to start picking try to do something else

Cognitve behaviour Therapy might be a help to you ..Just a thought

Glad to have you aboard

Hi and a warm welcome to healing well :-)

Nail biting can be definately be a symptom of anxiety.  If your doctor is "dismissing" you on this issue I agree with Lyn on taking it up with your therapist (it might also be worth thinking about dismissing your doctor if he doesn't show you enough respect!!)

Let us know how you get on and please don't feel wierd about posting your symptoms, we all have some funny ones here !!

I alone can do this, but I cannot do it alone.
