  • I don't have a kid that has done this, but it could be a tick. Kind of like a nervous tick but not because of nerves. It's actually a really mild form of tourettes.

    My daughter had a cough, they were sure it was asthma but turns out, it's her tick. They say she'll out grow it. It went away but came back for a little bit after a cold, now it seems to be gone again. The neurologist said we could put her on anti-seizure meds if it gets really bad and inhibits anything she is doing.
