usernamecat Posted August 29, 2020 Report Share Posted August 29, 2020 Hi there, I'm new here. My daughter is 7 (almost 8) she started developing some weird arm flapping movements along with jumps, this is happening all day and it worries me so much. I realized it could be a tic since the year previous when she was 6, she had an eye blinking tic. Her pediatrician is referring us to a neurologist who stated she may have complex motor tics during their consult. We are currently waiting for the neuro to schedule an appointment. It is so worrisome, I've had constant bouts of crying everyday. I am hoping that she will just grow out of of it or it decreases to only a few a day but will not affect her if she is at school. Currently she is doing virtual school from home due to covid (we are in California) but if these tics remain .... I'm afraid of her emotional and social development if kids tease her. During her zoom meetings she says she suppresses them but after the meetings are done she does a bunch. I tell her that it's ok if she needs to release them during her meeting or anytime she feels the need to and does not have to hold them in. Diet wise we have always been gluten free (her younger sister is allergic to wheat, egg, and cashew) and she's always had probiotics in addition to her multi-vitamins. I am going to add magnesium supplements for her. If anyone has experience please share! Does complex motor tics usually go away? Currently she does her arm flap and jump with the occasional eye blinking/roll tic. Is this a sign that she has TS? Its all so overwhelming. :( Thanks for reading, any advice, feedback, or stories would be really appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
