  1. Hi, I'm new to this forum. My five year old son had a motor tic at the age of three (shrugging). Our pediatrician didn't think anything of it. She suspected it would go away. It did. Then, when he was four, he had a weird (never identified) virus followed by eye rolling tics that resembled a seizure. After an MRI to rule out a brain tumor and an EEG, he was diagnosed with transient tics. Since the testing more than a year-and-a-half ago, the tics have evolved to include motor and vocal tics. We have an appointment with a specialist in three months. The eye rolling (accompanied by photo sensitivity) and sniffing are most bothersome for him. His eyes water a great deal when the ocular tics start up. He is miserable. The tics seem to be exacerbated by stress/anxiety and allergies. We are doing a better job of treating his allergies with medication, which seems to help. I'm wondering if anyone else has tried other approaches that have successfully alleviated the eye rolling/sniffing/photo sensitivity? I've seen others try dietary approaches. Unfortunately, my son has gustatory issues and doesn't eat a wide range of foods (he gags if it isn't the "right" texture). I stuff nearly everything nutritious into a smoothie every day. Thank you for your time!
