  1. No my boys are not on meds. I am trying to go the natural route. What suppliments have you tried? Have you had any success? It is confusing and alot to read thru and educate yourself on.. I think most of the parents on this site are better informed than some of the Dr.s. Sorry to hear about your recent Break Down. I swear you have to be a parent going thru this to understand those moments! Well we have to fight to help our kids and we get back up for another day! Hopefully better than the last.
  2. So the breathing tic stopped but now a new hands to the chest tic has started! Seriously, this is some kind of crazy... He has never had any real issues and not 2 major tics in a weeks span? I have racked my brain trying to figure out what could have brought this on and nothing comes to mind. Oh even stranger, my 16 year old had this hand to chest tic about 3 weeks ago. It was a new tic that he had never had before, and now my 8 year old gets the same tic only much more severe??? Any ideas??? Nothing has changed in diet for either one of them... I have always had sensory issues with my 8
  3. Thanks so much for all the helpful posts. I have went back and forth with the Pandas but I am so overwhelmed that I feel as if I am just starting to get an understanding on the TS. My 16 year old had what the Dr.s called transient tics. They came and went off and on. It has only been recently the last 6 months that I would describe them as constant. He blinks and clears his throat, a little bit. We have started him on suppliments 6 months ago and continue to experiment with things. The Neuro we went to said it it TS( but honestly he only spent 5 min. with us). He has been breaking out a
  4. My 8 year old son suddenly started this out of control breathing tic last night. It's like he is forcing the air out of his lungs with such force he makes a weird croup like sound. He went to school today and told me he tried really hard to hide it from his friends so that they would not stop playing with him. He said it is so embarressing to him and they will not like him anymore. He has never had much of an issue with tics, my older 16 year old son is the one that has had them on and off since age 5. My 8 year old just recently started with a little bit of sniffling. Tonight it was so
  5. yes I think it is related to the mag taurate. I am gonna stick to the mag by itself. Thanks so much for the input!!!!
  6. Nothing has changed in his diet. The only change has been the suppliments going from Mag Citrate to Mag taurate. Not sure what else to consider.
  7. SO we started Mag Taurate 500 mg about a week ago. Suddenly a new tic with his wrist. He is flexing his left wrist and bending it. I can't figure out what has brought this new one on. Has anyone had any issues with Mag Taurate causing new tics?
  8. So my son age 16 who has had tics on and off since age 5 has been having the same cronic tics since before Christmas. In He has been on several suppliments and things seemed to get better for a few months, but now they are back will not go away. After alot of reading and helpful posts I have added some suppliments and praying to see some improvement soon. I am a little unclear about the Niacin issue? I would prefer to use the no flush but all I can seem to find is inositol hexanicotinate. Is this the same as Inositol Nicotinate? I was thinking 500 mg a day. His current program is: Gaba
  9. SO days of reading these god sent posts and filling my notebook with tons of info has gotten me to were I feel comfortable with what suppliments to add into my sons current regiment. I would however really like to get him tested before hand to see about mineral deficiencies or overload. I asked his Neurologist if we could run blood tests and he informed me that lack of any minerals has nothing to do with TS. Yup that's what he said! Ohhh I can go on an on about what an ***** he is! Anyway, seeing as how the DR. has been no help and actually laughed at me when I gave him a list of the suppl
  10. No recent illness. I have no idea other than the caffine and red drink... I do notice that when he gets upset or stressed the tics increase. It is like putting a puzzle together. I feel like the more time I spend trying to figure it out the more attention I draw to it. He is so sick of me asking what he ate, what time he went to bed, if he is upset about something on and on and on.... Exhausting for us both but not sure what else to do when I am playing detective everyday!
  11. The eye blinking yes with the soda. The new tics I have no idea! Has anyone noticed an increase of tics or new tics around the age of 16? His hormones are crazy, his face is breaking out and now the tics increased? Can it be the age?
  12. nope, nothing new. He was using the suppliments as usual and then the tics started. I asked what had changed and he told me he had soda and some drink with red food coloring. It has been 3 weeks of not soda and still the tics have not eased up???? Eye twitching, a weird burping type noise and flexing of the abs. The abs flexing is new and he has never done this before. My 8 year old however does the abs thing all the time.
  13. Ah ha! Thanks! I could not figure this out... I wanted to say Thanks for all the info. I am going to go thru all the info and see what to add to his current routine. He only has tics not any other issues with ocd or other things I have read about here. My younger son however does have OCD and sensory issues. He has started with tics as well. So I am taking in all the info I can to be better prepared for him as well. My problem is that my 8 year old will is so sensitive to texture and smell that it is nearly impossible to get any suppliments down. Liquid is all he can tolerate. I hav
