  • My little sister is 10. She developed a tic along the same lines and had a number of other minor issues like a history of yeast infection, a toe fungus and belly aches. They were all minor and never really prompted her Dr. to think they were related. Just recently she was tested and confirmed to have celiac disease. Cutting out gluten eliminated ALL of those problems within a week.

  • you should talk to your ped about tourettes, sometimes people just do things bc their brain is telling them to. the best thing is to accept peole for who they are. i had a very good friend with it who saw a hypnotherapist and got his changed from screams and whistles to sneezing and grunting. people just thought he had allergies.

  • 20-30% of ALL kids have some sort of tic. It is very common, some are minor and not an issue. My son's psychiatrist said that most kids develop them as a was to cope or deal with things like stress and anxiety. MOST kids will grow out of them. Talk to your doctor, but be very cautious, my son has a vocal tic and when I talked to our doc he first jumped to Tourette's and wanted to give him a medication for it, I am NOT medicating the tic because the list of side effects and the possibility of addiction to that medication freaked me right out. So talk to your doctor, but unless it is hindering him in everyday life and activities, he MAY grow out of it...
