    Long term injuries from tics?

    I am 21 years old, and was diagnosed with ADHD and Tourette's syndrome at age 7 or 8. My tics, like most, have come and gone in severity through the years, at their worst in middle school, but have seemed to level off a bit in my early adult years. Recently, I have been dealing with some pretty intense facial and hand tics. My hand tics have gotten so bad that I have resorted to taping my fingers...

    Do I have Tourette Syndrome?

    I feel like I have tourettes cause I have some uncontrolable tics, like head jerking, eye twiching, saying random words, really bad repeating stutter, and breathing in extemely sharp. And everytime I try to hold them in it doesn't feel right, it almost hurts sometimes, its like an itch or a sneeze that won't go away until I do it.

    My son

    Yesterday my son woke up, came into the kitchen and started having a sniffing and neck twitching TIC. Initially I sent him off to the bathroom because I thought he needed to blow his nose. When he came out and looked upset and confused I realised that this was something else. He sat down and then the TIC just took over and it kept repeating itself.  My son lay down, closed his eyes and starting...

    I need some support

    I've had tourettes since I was about 15 and it was very mild like when you get a chill and your body just twitches, then now(I'm 19 now) I got a verbal tic where I yell "What" and jerk my head to the right, then now again out of the blue I needed to jerk my head up and down. I was never officially diagnosed because there is no definitive diagnosis. My family thinks its for attention and I just...

    Moderate cannabis successful for my tics

    I have found that cannabis helps with controlling my tics. Tics include voicing out phrases, arm jerks, head jerks and grimacing. It is also being used to control schizophrenic symptoms including daytime nightmares, obsessing on problems magnified by my imagination. I am able to positively dream of better outcomes with much emotional relief. My psych dr and I discuss the necessity to maintain...
