Hi, I'm always thinking about the genetics part of why my daughter has tics. Around 5/06 started with neck and shoulder tic. Then went away completely until she had her shots 11/06, 5 weeks later came on strong and has not gone away since. She does have it very mild now. Im more concerned with her stomach issues and vitamin defencenies. Well back to the genetics, I have OCD but she does not, is that commom? I watch discovery show on tourettes and they said 30% of tourettes have ocd or adhd. It seems from reading these post that percentage should be higher.

My Nero asked her if she had any signs of ocd, or is she moody. She is moody but mostly with me

and she does lash out sometimes. I do not know if thats just a teenage thing. Thanks Maryann

OCD in my six year old PANDAS son is not the constant handwashing from contamination kind of OCD. It is more about marked likes and collections and talking about his likes over and over as if he thinks it is everyones favorite subject. He is stuck on movies. He knows all the ratings, reviews, dates they come out on DVD or at the theaters. Loves, loves movies. Wants to see or own them. He has been this way since Harry Potter at age two. It is funy to hear him spouting off actors full names that are in films. He does line up his toys and is very neat about putting them away. When he plays he takes out all the same types. It is amazing he can keep track of where they all are. Also he loves Happy Meal toys and collects them all. This started at age three. He would cry for hours when we passed a Mcdonalds. He is much better about accepting "not today" for a reason now. He collects all the Webkinz and checks them online everyday to see what is added or retired in the collections. He has twenty-two now. He has had compulsive urinating at times during PANDAS flare ups. Definately emotional liability and mood swings though. Lashes out at family too. Hope this helps since it is not traditional OCD. We definately had the shot issues too. The symptoms including tics lasted from about May till Dec after the five year old shots. As an adult I know OCD becomes more about cleaning etc. We have the ADD issues also with him. Very complicated syndrome because of the different symptoms. He has had gut candida issues but they seem better for now. Also the gross motor delays have caused alot of trouble with handwriting. I am not sure how common this is? All the best.
