  • From my research on the subject, I would say there is a connection. My son has Tourette's & I have OCD. My mother also had OCD. There is a great book by David Comings that discusses many aspects of the heredity of these & other related disorders. It's called "Tourette Syndrome and Human Behavior".

  • You think OCD is a disorder? I don't think there is a connection.

  • How about Touretts, I asked about that too. Could you answer that question. People dont have to be so rude.
