Why does my ds do this?

he is 8 yrs. old and for some reason he has this habit of moving his head as if shaking off water but he only does it twice then stops then every so often he'll do this again n again, he also has a habit of opening his mouth like a yawn but for a moment and that to every so often. We did make an appointment with the doctor but I want to hear from you ladies. Thanks!

  • I agree with butterfly, I have a friend who has tourettes and he does things very similar.

  • I don't have any experience with tourettes, so I don't know about that. To me it makes me think that he's trying to pop his ears or he feels like there is liquid in his ears.
