glasses and increased tics
kokopele posted a topic in Tourette Syndrome and TicsI am wondering if anyone has noticed an increase in eye/facial tics when their child is wearing glasses. My 10 year daughter has mild tics on a daily basis but when she puts on her glasses which she needs for distance although she likes to wear them more and more often because of the clarity - she has very strong facial tics. If she is watching a screen they become even stronger and include head and neck movements. She obviously needs her glasses (they have an anti-glare coating) more often than not and I don't know if maybe a tinted lens would be better. I would appreciate hearing your experiences and/or suggestions.
Neck pain triggering neck tic or vise versa
pasquale61 posted a topic in Tourette Syndrome and TicsMy 9 year old son woke up complaining of serious neck pain. Within a few hours he developed a neck tick followed by eye roll.. He has suffered from various tics for years. Has had neck tics in the past. I'm wondering if the neck pain triggered the recent neck tic or the tics triggered the neck pain. I'm hoping when pain subsides the tics will wane.
