Report Simple to Complex Tics in Tourette Syndrome and Tics Posted October 3, 2013 My son had almost 2 years of only a couple of tics, Eye stretching and mouth opening and not continuous. Then in January this year vocals started and rapidly became full on and then more and more motor tics started. Although none were very severe or complex the list definitely grew very long in only a couple of months. We are now back down to very few, mild and infrequent tics. So yes things can move that fast.
