  1. Hi all, my 10 year old daughter started having facial ticks a few weeks ago in the summer holidays apparently triggered by screentime. She moves her eyes to one side, opening them wide and head moves in the opposite direction to eyes - says her eyes feel like they need to stretch. We had a screen detox and the tic went away but has now come back apparently triggered by anxiety and an panic attack (first one ever). The eye thing started again and so arrived some facial twitching and excessive eye blinking. I've now found she also has an abdominal one where she moves her legs towards her and back when sitting/lying (looks like she needs the toilet or something). She also for about a year has this breathing thing where she takes very deep breaths saying she can't get enough air. I took her to docs who said this may also be a tic - just ignore and will probably go away. That's it. My daughter has suffered with an anxiety disorder since she was very young but it seemed to have mostly resolved until this. Just really worried that my daughter will not outgrow this and she has yet another obstical to overcome. I read that with transient tics that disappear it's only one tic at a time which has worried me. I'm concerned about other children bullying her because of it. She starts secondary school next year. I haven't been drawing attention to them and trying my best not to show my own worry about them. Advice and/or reassurance anyone? Thanks in advance
