Hi, I'm brand new here. My 9 yr old son has had tics for years but has never been diagnosed. I don't know what benefit there is to having him diagnosed. I'd like to try going gluten-free and other natural remedies, but can do those on my own right? Please let me know what, if any, difference it would make to tell his pediatrician.
He started by smelling his hands and grimacing, always pulling his shirt down in the back over and over when he's sitting down, flapping, jumping up and down, and lifting his hands with fingers separated as if in a mime while staring/glaring off in one direction
