The reason I asked was mostly for social reasons,as you know kids can pick out differences really fast,,, I am not a doctor,, but in my experience,, I have 2 friends with children with Tourettes,,, and DH does alot of orthopedics for toe walking,, most are really advanced... I would say take him to the neuro. Keep a journal for 2 weeks before you go,, document,, when the tics occur my guess is that when put in new and or uncomfortable situations they increase...I had a really good friend who had Tourettes that was so mild,, he wasn't diagnosed until age 40--he had rapid eye blinking and head jerk in certain situations.. I suffered from epilepsy as a child,,and am so thankful that my parents finally got me help---I had really weird "spacey: moments,,almost like frozen in time, I fianlly had a grand mal seizure and got meds,, grew out of it now okay huggles to you momma!
