I'm 44 with tourette's since I was 7. I tried a couple meds years ago, but It's fairly manageable since adulthood. One of the consolations has been (I thought) that it wouldn't get worse and could possibly diminish with age. For the past month, my tics have doubled with no major changes in my life. I figure it could be hormonal and when I looked that up I found that other men and women have worsening tics with age.....I appreciate any comments from your experiences.
