  1. Hi Sheila, Thank you for the thoughtful response to my questions. I bought your book and will look further into the food additive connection. We have an appointment with a tic/tourette's specialist, but it's months away. San Diego is home. If you know of a specialist in the region, please let me know. I'm eager to find ways to help my little man. I'm not confident we'll find all the answers we need from conventional medicine. I suspect you went through many years of anguish on the road to better health and healing for your son. Thank you for sharing what you learned along the way. It's encouraging to hear he is now doing well.
  2. Hi, I'm new to this forum. My five year old son had a motor tic at the age of three (shrugging). Our pediatrician didn't think anything of it. She suspected it would go away. It did. Then, when he was four, he had a weird (never identified) virus followed by eye rolling tics that resembled a seizure. After an MRI to rule out a brain tumor and an EEG, he was diagnosed with transient tics. Since the testing more than a year-and-a-half ago, the tics have evolved to include motor and vocal tics. We have an appointment with a specialist in three months. The eye rolling (accompanied by photo sensitivity) and sniffing are most bothersome for him. His eyes water a great deal when the ocular tics start up. He is miserable. The tics seem to be exacerbated by stress/anxiety and allergies. We are doing a better job of treating his allergies with medication, which seems to help. I'm wondering if anyone else has tried other approaches that have successfully alleviated the eye rolling/sniffing/photo sensitivity? I've seen others try dietary approaches. Unfortunately, my son has gustatory issues and doesn't eat a wide range of foods (he gags if it isn't the "right" texture). I stuff nearly everything nutritious into a smoothie every day. Thank you for your time!
