Hi I am hoping someone can offer some advice. My son is 9 and a half now and has suffered from motor tics pretty constantly since he was 5. He only has simple tics and no vocal tics and no ADHD or OCD. They are hard to watch though as they usually centre around his face mainly the eyes. I thought he had an eye problem originally but that's been ruled out. He excessively blinks really hard scrunching his eyes up and also rolls them. People are starting to notice at school and he is fed up with it himself so I have been to the GP who is going to do some research and try and find out what's best to do to help him.
They are very bad at the moment and I would be grateful if anyone can help. I was wondering if anyone had tried bontech supplements? He is on a 2 week dairy free diet to see if that's a trigger but I am doubtful that will help. He takes fish oils, magnesium and a multivitamin but it doesn't seem to make much difference TBH.
It would be good to find someone else who has experienced this as I don't know anyone else who has!
