  1. My son is 7 and for the past couple of years his tics have gotten progressively worse. He started with finger tics- he would twist his fingers all different ways, all the time. I spoke to his pediatrician about a year ago because it had progressed from finger twisting to head shaking. He said it was involuntary and to try not to call too much attention to it- as long as it didn't bother my son too much we shouldn't worry about it. His tics right now are head shaking, twirling, shoulder shrugs, and finger twisting. He doesn't seem to have any vocal tics as of yet. He spent the weekend with my mother in law- and while she knew about the tics- she didn't know how bad they had become- she was scared and thought he was having a seizure at one point. I have never experienced anything like this- neither my husband or myself have tics, nor do my other children. I am going to try a week long break from all video games and I am going to print a calender and mark all the times that I see his tics, I am really hoping that they will decrease and that this will be my answer. If not, I will be taking him to a neurologist. Is there anything else I should be doing? I feel like I am flying blind. Any help would be appreciated!
