Make an appointment with doctor, to refer you to the right specialist, to rule out any physical causes.

Are you on any medications ? certain medication can cause abnormal physical behavior, muscle twithing, etc....

But as long as your head shake, does not interfere with your sleep, or you have no problem with it, then your family should support you.  

Good luck !

I have the same thing my dad said its a habbit I have. My cousin used to do it when she was very young but my aunt caught her and did not let her do it anymore.
My mom says she thinks its because when I was a baby she would rock me back and forth. She said my head used to move back and forth like I fall asleep.
I kinda sooths me :D.
