  1. Thanks for you reply mythree, although i truly wouldn't wish this on anyone, it's really comforting to know that i'm not alone and other parents are feeling the exact same way as me (and you described it exactly). Going back to School is the part i'm dreading most at the moment, as there is no one in ds school who has tics, not that he's noticed anyway, so he feels as if he's the only one suffering with this, but we will just have to take each day as it comes x
  2. Hi everyone, I have been reading the posts on this forum for a while now and it's really comforting to know that i'm not the only one going through this. My son was diagnosed with a chronic tic disorder when he was approx 7 years old as he was constantly clearing his throat. Up until approx 7 weeks ago, (2 months after his 12th birthday) he hasn't really been too bad and then for no apparant reason he developed more vocal tics, like a high pitched squeal and another one where he says 'a' really loudly and a couple of other throat sounds. He has been doing these every day, every few seconds! We are waiting for another appointment with the pediatrician to come through. I have cried myself to sleep many times and have a constant knot in my stomach worrying about my gorgeous boy and how he will be in the future. I have been doing tons of research on how to help him and went to see a Nutritionist yesterday who will arrange for comprehensive testing to see if ds is lacking minerals or has any sensitivities. Anyway I was starting, only just, to lose that horrible constant knot in stomach feeling and I was starting to get a grip on things when today my little angel started a swearing tic and now i'm back to square one. My blood ran cold when I first heard him and then I just felt so angry thinking 'why is my son having to go through this? what's he ever done to anybody'? and now i'm just very sad and tearful, I know there are children and adults who are a lot worse off with life threatening illnesses and I should put things into perspective but it's so hard. Anyway, I feel a little better now typing this, thanks for listening x
