This mother panicked when her previously normal 8-year-old boy suddenly developed severe eye and neck movements “out of nowhere.” Frightened but determined, she did everything she could think of to find an answer, as fast as possible. Read how Cory’s mom discovered what treatment to use to take the movements away, when her pediatrician couldn’t help.
We live in Florida with my 8-year-old son Cory who has always been very healthy. Never a cold, not one childhood sickness. One day he started to roll his eyes from side to side with a strong neck movement. He said he couldn’t help doing it, over and over and over. The look in his eyes when he was doing it was like he had nerve palsies, like Tourettes syndrome tics are described. It came on so suddenly, out of nowhere! It was really weird and frightening.
