  1. I think it's always like that when they try to rest, the tics are the worst. Been tired is also a trigger for tics. It is hard to see them suffering, I'm going through the same thing. The challenge is to find what are the triggers for your son. Start keeping a log, write what he ate, what he did, if he was mostly indoors/outdoors, screen time, stress etc. And keep reading. For my son we discovered that chlorine (pools) was a big trigger as well as dopamine increased foods like bananas and corn. Hopefully it helps, good luck!
  2. Hi SoCalMom, Did you find any good doctor in L.A? My son started again with serious tics after a long period of non-noticeable tics. I'm starting to panic... Did you go to Dr. Deborah lehman? Thanks
  3. I don't have experience but my friend has a lot. Check : http://www.ktla.com/videogallery/69184359/Technology/tech-report---adhd-tech
  4. My son was sick last year and he had extremely high titers.He had various tics (motor and vocals). We treated him with abs as well as changing his diet (no artificial,no MSG, + fish oil, + probiotic , +Epsom salts). After a couple of months and also the discovery that some food was causing his vocal tics, we eliminate that food, and slowly he began to heal. From all the things we did, I'm not sure what really helped. Two months ago, he started having some minor tics, and then he started having this cough, that it turned out that it is a tic too. Last week we did again the blood tests, a
  5. After a couple of months with no tics, my DS8 started coughing in a weird way. He coughs around 4 times in a row, then stops, after a couple of minutes again. Any experience with cough tic?
  6. Welcome Troy! Try to think about what is the thing that your son crave the most.Sometimes that is exactly the food that we are allergic to. Look at http://www.askdrsears.com/html/4/t041800.asp In our case we discover that bananas were the trigger for our son's vocal tics. Good luck!
  7. Hi to everybody, I don't want to open my mouth, but my son is doing really good, with barely any noticeable motor tics and no vocal tics. We did many things to try to improve his condition so I really don't know, if it is a combination of those things or one in particular. It started around April (allergy season) mys on is allergic to all pollen trees. Together with stress from state test. He was having terrible motor tics (jaw open,twisting neck) every 3 seconds, all day. He also had vocal tics (screams). Things that we did in time order: -No msg,food coloring, move to organic diet. -N
  8. If you look at the link http://www.latitudes.org/articles/finding_triggers.htm New carpeting is one of the tic triggers.
  9. Faith, I am sorry but I'm trying to figure it out also, I read that some people with pollen allergy can develop OAS (oral allergy syndrome) to specific foods. We are trying to find the triggers for my DS8 tics, and looks like the foods that he was craving the most (bananas and cucumbers in his case) became a food allergy for him. Right now we are avoiding those foods as well as all the artificial foods and colors and his vocals appear to be better.
  10. I am going through the same phase as you.I've tried the elimination diet, with no much success. There is something very interesting, my son used to eat lots of bananas and cucumbers (those were his favorite fruit/vegetable), we run out of those and I didn't buy those for a week, the interesting thing is that his vocal tics went away. Then I bought some and the tics came back. We tried it again (eliminating those two for a week and bringing them back) same result. Then I read that there are a lot of people who develop food allergy, specially for the food they eat the most. So my recommendat
