A neurological Tic disorder...any moms kids have this?

My son has this and meets with a neuroligist on the 15th of this month. Im wondering if theres any other moms out there with a child that has this condition and what are the dr's doing to help contol the tics? I know they put them on meds but im curious to know what and for how long. Any help would be appriciated. If you would like please send me a message. Thanks.

  • Exactly what do you mean by TIC?
    spasms? or more like Aspergers Syndrome?

  • He jerks his head to the right and blinks his eyes alot. they are all involuntary and happen alot. He has good days were he doesnt do the TICS alot and bad days were he has the TICS all day long.

  • My mom sees a natural Dr. when it comes to my 9 year old sister. She was developing facial tics and they have since cured them by cutting WAY back on her processed foods and sugar intake. There is ALOT of power in cutting back sugar.
