Additional advice: new transient tics
ykristal posted a topic in Tourette Syndrome and TicsHi, My 4.5 year old son has suddenly developed tics. We dont have any family history as far as I know, and it is breaking my heart. It first started with nose itching and now that is gone and he either claps or runs around and claps. We have seen numerous neurologists and the diagnosis has been the same- transient tics. We had an EEG done and it was normal. The only advice I got from most is to wait and see. That is not my style. I have started reading the book on how to deal with tics in a natural way, started a 1 month electronics fast and now working on reducing sugar. My friend, who is a pediatric neurologist also recommended giving him adult dose of fish oil, zinc supplement, iron supplement and magnesium. I bought a gluten free, sugar free magnesium supplement but it is making his stool runny. Would appreciate any advice you have on magnesium supplements and overall insights. Also, we started him on a course of homeopathic medicine, about a month prior to tics, I was wondering if that is somehow was a trigger or tics could be a side effect of the medcine? Thank you, Restless mama.
can sexual arousal be a tic?
Lily123 posted a topic in Tourette Syndrome and TicsThis is my first post and i rly need help so plz answer if you can:) I apologize for the sexual content... I have a tic syndrome characterized by a bunch of complex motor tics. These usually get worse at night or when i am alone. I am currently taking no treatment or medication for this because i believe i can manage to live with it (I also have ocd, add and posibly ptsd) However there is one thing that really bothers me and I'm not sure if its a tic or some sort of sexual dysfunction. What happens is this: countless times a day at home, outside, at night, in the day i feel an urge to clench or move my vaginal muscles. It is a little similar to having a split second orgasm but it is NOT VOLUNTARY AND NOT CAUSED BY ACTUAL AROUSAL it's just sort of like I have to do it and I hate it. It's like having zero control over my body and worse over my sexual experience. Usually it follows or is followed by a lot of my other motor tics, especially those in my legs and feet. It feels exactly like a tic does--the urge and the helplessness to stop. Does anyone know anything about this???? When I actually am sexually active in a normal voluntary way it calms the tics down for a little, but it always comes back after some time. I end up twitching in my seat, which looks like the tic is in my whole body but its only because of the movement down there.... Please please someone help me !!! Thank you
Arm Jerking - Tic?
kmx posted a topic in Tourette Syndrome and TicsI have eye twitching & vocal tics. I am 26 M. Haven't been dx with TS yet. 3 Months ago i had muscle twitching in my arm,this was only for one day and then disappeared.10 days ago it started again and is causing me troubles and pain. It is mostly in my right arm, mild in left arm. Its like shivering in the upper arm.i.e mostly internal muscle twitching.It also extends to the hand sometimes.I feel its in the tricep muscle towards the elbow joint. Another problem is that it is hampering my sleep.With vocal tics / eye twitching they go away when i am about to sleep or if i am resting. This muscle twitching increases especially since i lose a lot of sleep daily because of it and makes me extra concious. I haven't been able to get it noted if i tic while i sleep.My other tics aren't present when i sleep. I used to have a bit of arm twiching earlier but is was very low and in the form of arm shaking. Infact occured very occasionally. Any remedy to provide temporary relief ? Magnesium isn't helping. I have been taking 400mg Magnesium Citrate with B6 for the past 4 days. Should i wait or quit taking. I am having on and off constipation for the past few days.Taking isabgol. Can this tic be due to bad gut? I was looking for muscle twitching and is linked to many other disorders as well.I just wanted to know if it is just like my other tics or something else.
