I'm 20 years old and I've had OCD accompanied by tics since I was a little kid. The OCD symptoms have subsided over the years and now almost entirely consist of tics. The main two tics are jaw popping and blinking. The jaw popping can be really bad to the point where I either clench my teeth, bite my cheeks, or simply don't open my mouth for fear of popping my jaws. The blinking is almost constant and is mainly in one eye, but either ways it makes it hard to drive and I've recently noticed my vision becoming blurry which I can only imagine is from the constant blinking. The two tics alternate back and fourth, so when I'm not doing one I do the other. When I'm on the correct dose of meds, the tics subside but still persist and I'm looking for some methods outside of OCD meds for treating my tics. I'm going to the doctor in a few days to increase my meds dosage which will help but I'm interested in hearing some other methods as well. I recall reading something about magnesium and calcium? I already take calcium and am willing to try almost anything to bring these tics down to a manageable level. Right now, they are worse than they have ever been. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
