  1. Thanks for getting back to me. I have thought long and hard and nothing has changed. Hopefully I can get this one under control or it just goes away lol
  2. Hello, I am a 32 year old man with mild Tourette’s syndrome. I have had tics on and off my whole life since I was about 5 years old. My main consultant tic has been head shaking similar to how someone would shake their head no. Thiughout my life I had has a few other tics come and go, like grunting, shoulder piping etc. Very recently, about a month ago, I developed a new tic and it’s been miserable. I have been puffing air out of my lungs in these short quick puffs when I puff it makes noise and people are aware. It draws attention to me and makes me self conscious, which causes anxiety which makes the tic worse! It is very frustrating I have been focusing on trying to stop the tic which has been affecting my breathing. I focus so hard on not puffing that I forget to breath any advice from anyone with a similar tic would be helpful! thank you!
  3. Hello, I am a 33 year old man with mild case of Tourette’s. I have had various tics throughout my life, usually one at a time sometime 2. The one that has been most consistent is my head shaking where I shake my head like I’m saying”no”. Recently, about a month or so I have developed a new tic. This like grunting/ pushing air out of my lungs tic, similar to what you have described. It it is affecting my breathing and the more I try to control it the more I seem to “forget “ to breath. Any my advice from anyone in this forum would be great. I have become very self conscious about my Tourette’s, something I haven’t felt in many years. But this new tic is drawing a lot of attention, which makes me more anxious and causes me to tic more often. Help!
