Can Blood Donations reduce tics?

Recommended Posts

Hi all.


We had something interesting happen this spring. My 7.5 yo son was in a high tic state and we had a lot of tests done. About 10 tubes of blood were taken pretty late in the evening. Went home, went to sleep, and in the morning the tics were almost completely gone. Way fewer than ever before. This lasted about 5 weeks, and then we went on vacation, he got an infection, diet was not very controlled, etc. and he is back to high-moderate amounts.


My question is, has anyone else experienced this with major blood draws? Or, for adults who have donated blood, have you seen any effect? He is too young to donate blood, and I don't think his doc will order blood draws just to test this out!


Thanks for any insights.
