  1. Hello- My son has been doing great & today started a tic explosion with lots of blinking & a rash all over his face. I just did some searching and came across something on salicylic acid, which we have been putting on his foot (17% solution) for his two warts for 4 days now. Could this be causing the blinking & extreme emotional sensitivity we have seen? I am amazed!!! And... feeling a little silly for not even seeing the connection before now. Any feedback would be so appreciated!!! Thanks, Jeanne
  2. Hello there- We have started taking our son to a chiropractor. She practices NUCCA, but said she wanted to take 2-3 x-rays. I am very hesitant to expose my son to anything out of the ordinary, as he seems so sensitive & will sometimes tic more after being exposed to "intense" things. I asked her to hold off, let me research it & in the meantime, could she just adjust him. She agreed and "cracked" him. Today, maybe 15-20 times total he has thrown his head back. We haven't seen this tic in months. It was still mild, but now it has me rethinking. Perhaps NUCCA would indeed be better.
  3. This is a great topic My 7 year old blinks, chews his fingers & urinates frequently. In the past he has licked his hands at times , chewed his tongue, & nodded his head. He is very into music and very emotional/sensitive He appears to have photo sensitivity issues as well, after the whole firework ordeal. Thanks for the insights, Jeanne

  5. great! is it something you gave everyday or just "as needed"? thanks for your support , chemar!!! jeanne
  6. Just thought I would give you an update on my son, who started blinking like crazy & chewing his fingers after watching 4th of July fireworks. Exactly three days to the minute he stopped!! It was amazing!! I was going crazy(thanks for all of your support!) so I am feeling REALLY,REALLY thankful to have him back to"normal". He still does some mild tongue chewing, but that does not drive me up a wall like the hard blinking. I will say during the midst of all of this I started him on L-Carnitine. I know it makes some kids edgy, but I thought I would try it & see- hard to say if he just c
  7. Hi all- I posted yesterday about my son blinking since seeing fireworks on 4th of July. He has been blinking ever since and I now officially feel my anxiety at an all time high!!! This winter I dedicated my life to helping find answers for my son- allergy tests, strep tests, food changes, nystatin, weekly NAET treatments(dragging my 4 kids 2 hours each week), probiotics, digestive enzymes every time he eats, bonnie's, nothing artificial, no sugar. We have modified our life more ways than I can even articulate- no movies, tv, flashing video games, etc,etc,etc, as I am sure you can all relate!
  8. Hi there- Just wanted to take a quick informal poll... Did anyone else experience their child blinking intensely at the sight of fireworks last night? My son, age 7 has been doing great, though we stay away from tv & videos altogether anymore, as he will start blinking right away.. he can play webkinz on the computer & seems fine. But, last night we went to fireworks and he immediately started in. It is just so interesting to me & I am curious if the "flashing lights" were a trigger for anyone else's child? Also, any thoughts on what this means? Any likelihood this means it is mo
  9. Hi Faith- I'm not entirely sure what she means by "emotional clearing", that's why I am posting, in hopes of shedding more light on it!! I think a lot of it is indeed emotional for my son & I do believe NAET treatments have helped. It is a healing therapy using energy. The basic 15 are cleared 1st (Vitamin C, egg mix, sugar, corn, wheat, B vitmains to name a few) but she has had emotional stuff come up for him that she muscle tests him for/clears him.. and he seems better. He hasn't blinked in 3 weeks, though does some mild tongue chewing & wiping his mouth on his sleeve. Hey- I'll
  10. This is my first time posting & I want everyone to know how much your posts have helped me over the last 9 months!! I have learned so much & would love to get some feedback regarding whether or not to go forward with an MRI for my 6 (almost 7 ) year old son. Let me give a brief history... In Aug, of last year my son woke up one day just blinking like crazy, then he began clearing his throat & making some strange noises. The noises went away, but the blinking did not. I consulted with someone who knew a lot about autism & developmental disorders and she asked me if he craved
