  1. Anti-hystimines aren't suppose to be used, are they? My son's eye blinking was coming and going and worse during certain seasons and when we gave him claritin, it made his eyes dry and he'd blink even more.
  2. Sorry about your son's reaction. It's great though that you have found what his triggers are and can again go back to him eating safe foods and he'll be okay in a few days! My son has had specific foods elimated from his diet and today he's having a school party with one of the foods (cheese pizza) and I'm a bit uneasy about how he'll react. He's only been on the diet for around a month and a few weeks back did let him have a few no-no foods and he began ticking for a day or two. Not sure what to do about Easter. I said he could eat chocolate (which we eliminated) which probably
  3. We haven't done any food testing yet, but he did have the skin pricks and was found to be allergic to dust mites, dogs, and a few other things. His bedding is covered with allergenic sheeting and I change his pillowcase every other day (and flip it over so he's only exposed to each side once per wash) so none of the dest settling around the room gets on his face. His bedding is also washed in hot water. I'm not sure how much all the cleaning is helping. I still use regular cleaning products - windex and also regular laundry detergent - All Free and Clear and he's not having reactions
  4. Hi Pat, My son first had a spacer for his bottom teeth. Two baby molars were pulled and a device was put in to keep his teeth from shifting around before there was a chance for his adult molars to grow in. The *DAY* he had that put in, his tics (blinking, grunting/throat clearing) started. (Before then, if he had tics, we wouldn't have known - nothing noticable to even spark concern) Then last fall he had an exander put in. One of his adult teeth on the top had grown in and was grinding against a bottom tooth. The idea was to spread his palette with the expander and then put brace
  5. Has anyone not vaccinated at all? Just curious as my son has tics at age 9 and we opted to not get him vaccinated as a child and have filled out the form for "philosophical reasons," and he's in public school unvaccinated. My husband and I now wonder what would have happen had we had him vaccinated and how much worse things could have been. We had planned to get him vaccinated for chicken pox if he didn't get that by age 12. What do we do now?
  6. Hi everyone, This is my first post and I just wanted to share a bit of what has helped with my son's tics. They're not entirely gone, but dramatically reduced. First a bit of background. My son's first tics were blinking and grimmacing and that started *the day* he got his major dental work done. He has spacers put in his mouth. My husband and I were in denial and had him allergy tested (allergic to dust mites) and did all we could to reduce exposure to that. His blinking waxed and wanned and we decided it was seasonal. THEN, it became drastically worse after he had an expander p
