  1. My daughter recently turned 12 and has had facial tics for over 4 years. She has been on Clonodine for almost all of that time, but I really don't know if it helps. Of course, the tics come and go. Her tics have been blinking, nose scrunching, and eyebrow furrowing. Recently, she went for six months with no tics so we were hopeful they were done. They came back twice since then, unfortunately. I don't know what to do. We've tried changes in diet, epsom salt baths, air filters, natural cleaning products, no fragrance, etc. I read and search the internet. She sees a pediatric neurologist
  2. Thank you KateH! I will look into the other things that you mentioned that we are not doing.
  3. Thank you for your response! My daughter has had a suspected vocal tic but we're not 100% sure. She clears her throat quite a bit. I bought the epson salt lotion. Thank you for that suggestion. I'm trying not to get upset but it's hard. We went for blood work yesterday so maybe that will give us some answers.
  4. Can someone please tell me how long it takes to see results of dietary changes and vitamins? I posted a few days ago and only had one response so I'm really hoping that someone replies to this one. My daughter has facial tics (mainly nose scrunching) and three weeks ago we started gluten free, dairy free, sugar free and egg free. We also started magnesium taurine and B complex vitamin. We've seen some improvement but I was hoping for more, of course. Blood tests were done yesterday.
  5. My daughter is 8 and started blinking quite a bit last January. I'm not sure how it lasted but I'm thinking less than a month. This happened again a few months later. Each time we thought it was something with her glasses. About a month and a half ago (I think) she started scrunching up her nose. Sometimes it would happen at the same time as the blinking. It started to get constant and I was freaked out. My pediatrician didn't seem to know tons on the topic and said it was probably just transient tic disorder, don't worry, etc. Well, we ended up seeing a highly-regarded pediatric neuro
