  1. Thank you for your response, my son is on vitamin supplements and diet changes reducing dairy etc,,, I have made sure he carries on doing sports and doing stuff he loves . To be honest he is doing very well these days, he still tics daily but I guess that’s the waning period. I am just finding it so hard not knowing what’s to come , not being in control . Living life a day at a time not knowing if it will get better , worse or stay the same 😔 makes me lose hope and upset
  2. Since my son son started ticcing not a long time ago , I have gotten myself into a state. I am literally falling into peace’s I am scared that he will get the swearing / vocal tics. He has 6 tics at the moment this seems so extreme and im worried he’s going to get the swearing : vocals since that’s the only one he doesn’t have . is it normal of TS kids to have multiple at a time , head jerk, shoulder, toe scrunching , a stomach one , but clinching ,throat clearing, clicking tounge and other sounds. I discovered some of these myself he had not mentioned . I’m so worried. I feel like
  3. Thanks, we are seeing one for a full consultation on Monday . He understands tics and said he might be able to help with tension and pain but not cure. Although he said we might see an improvement. Fingers crossed. How is your son and how are his tics
  4. My son who started a head jerk this past month has been very emotional and having random emotional and anger outbursts, he has cried more this past month more than he’s done In years. Today I have him a journal to write about himself and he wrote sad, numb and tired. And he drew a sad monster who he says is the devil and he drew himself with 4 eyes and tears. He is 7 He also says he’s always sad at school and when I asked him why there doesn’t seem to be any real issues with bullying but seems like he’s not copying with life in general I’m so distraught as I don’t know what to
  5. I’m glad it went away for your son, it’s been 4 weeks of worry for me I use bath salts for him everyday before school and bed and occasionally use a spray which he finds stings so I use it when he’s asleep. I give him a multi vitamin that contains 75mg of magnesium and iron. When I asked him why he does that with his head he said it felt like a balloon that needed popping and he had to do it to popthe balloon. i think anxiety triggers his because this morning on the way to school he got spooked by a cat and he did a few head jerks after.seems school is stressing him. He seems
  6. They started 4 weeks ago out of nowhere. It’s disturbing to watch and it confuses him , some days he says it makes him upset that he can’t stop it and some days it makes his head fuzzy and neck hurts. I’m hoping it goes soon. However I also worry that something even worse will show up He had allergy tests done before and his main issue is grass allergy which causes red itchy and dry He has eye allergies . Which he uses an eye drop twice a day but since it has been winter we haven’t been using it much , he also takes a daily anti allergy medicine in summer / spring. His allergy test
  7. My 7 year old developed a head jerk tic a day after falling at school (not sure if related) X-rays were clear . I showed his GP a video of this head jerk and he said it’s behavoural just ignore it will go away. It’s been so hard for me to accept that this is happening. I recently had a baby who is colicky nd cries a lot so that’s one change that’s happened. I have noticed that he has become more sensitive and moody since this tic started he sometimes says things like no one loves me Anymore. Other people don’t seem to notice the tic and I’ve been told I’m overreacting, my husband d
