  1. Thank you @MLeefor your response. I will keep the diet and supplements going in the hope that it will improve them. Are the natural flavours in supplements bad??? Am I better using adult supplements and halving the dosage?? He has mild asthma but hasn’t caused him problems in a few years were he would have picked up a few chest infections in winter. Around the 10th June he was a bit chesty with a cough and I thought he had a chest infection. Due to convid, my doctor wouldn’t see him until he has a negative test. By the time we got test and results his chest had cleared a lot so we never did go to the doctor. He doesn’t have any adhd or add. No known Tourette’s in the family. I had a few facial tics (blinking and nose squishing) when I was about 11 or 12 which went away quickly. I only know now that they were tics. My doctor has referred him to paediatrics now. He doesn’t mention his tics, nor do i to him. I don’t think he realises he is doing it. Worrying me more than him!
  2. Hi @kuma how are things now with the tics and the diets etc?
  3. Hi everyone, I am new to this…. A very concerned and worried Mum. I feel my world is crashing down. Other than the odd shoulder shrug bearly noticeable, there was the odd eye roll when on the computer gaming and when tired. Nothing that worried me as it wasn’t really noticeable at all. A week of good weather we were in the garden a lot, playing a paddling pool, football etc. Had the odd ice cream at Granny’s etc. Got a bit of sunburn and after sun was applied. Temperature was between 29 and 31 degrees. Had an ice cream at the ice van Sat. Zoo on Sunday and had a iceberger ice cream. It was either the morning after or the Tuesday he was playing on the gaming pc and he started the throat clearing. The shoulder shrug became worse and the eye rolling. It happened to get worse so quick. It scared me. That was 3 weeks ago. His diet has a lot of refined sugars like bread and convenience foods like pastas, frozen chicken, take away pizza, tined tuna, noodles as well as good like natural oats, carrots, bananas, potatoes, fresh meet etc. He doesn’t really like veg… We had a picnic at the zoo were he had a large bag of crisps with his sandwiches.. On their ingredients was dried yeast extract and glutamate. This is all the information at the moment leading up to that day. I started him on a gluten and dairy free diet starting last Monday. I give him magnesium started 2 weeks ago (was 100mg but now 200g starting today) along with a folate. I am trying to stop him having foods with artificial flavours, colouring and preservatives. His magnesium lists sweetener (xylitol, steviol glycoside) and natural flavours (raspberry,cherry) anti-caking agent (silica) His folate has B6 and B12 and in the ingredients lists sweeteners: sorbitol, sucralose Flavouring: Natural orange flavouring. Is this ok??? **Is it too early for changes to happen regarding the change in diet? **Are the flavourings in his vitamins/minerals to be avoided? is 3 weeks too early for me to worry so much about his tics?? Any advice please. Thank you,x
