I just wanted to see if anyone else has had this issue. My 5 year old has developed a facial tic/twitch along with a humming and a clicking sound. Her doctor said its definately neurological sicne there is a sound involved and she obviously doesnt know she is doing this. So I made her an appointment with a neurologist. The doctor said he is a super nice guy and a great doctor so Im not worried there. I was just wondering if anyone else experienced anything similar and what happened and what to expect. We are extremely worried about this and the waiting and unknown is just making it worse.This tic has been going on for about 2 weeks. The pediatrician said that its common in 5-6 year olds but it doesnt last this long.Answer Question

my son has tourettes
he went to the neurologist about the same age for a diagnosis.. it was NOT invasive and involved alotof movement. My son thought it was fun! my son is now 13 and doing just fine... no meds. He does tic and we have learned to deal with it. His friends are great about it and he only had one issue with an idiot at school but the boy is a dullard and my son is so much smarter and wittier that the boy didnt get very far trying to tease him.
I think it is harder on the stupid kids than the kids with actual medical issue I think... they try and fail in all aspects. I have taught my kids to feel bad for the stupid ones and to simply live thier lives as who they are... you will always have to deal with stupid in life.
