Hi there. I'm new and seeking some support.
My 9 year old DS starting having severe motor tics about three weeks ago (around Sept 20). Very noticeable, full body, legs kicking, arms punching down, torso twitching. Started small but increased in duration (from 2 to 10 seconds long) and frequency (every minute - every few minutes). This morning was particularly bad; almost constant during breakfast. He gets better when he has some gross motor physical activity to concentrate on - soccer, running around with friends. But can't really sit still long enough to play piano now.
