My daughter is 12 and she has always had tics - subtle things like a head twitch and hand motions. But in the last 3 months she has started to vocalize a sound: hmmm hmmm she says that over and over again.
She is currently NOT on medication. We have tried so many different medications and the ticcing got so much worse. The side effects were worse than the benefits so I have given up on meds for now but will try again in a year or so.
I don't have a question I just wanted to share this because it makes me so sad. I am concerned about her returning to middle school next year and other kids reacting to her repeating hmmm hmmm.
