My son (almost 15) has had tics since he was 6. At aged 8 he was referred by our GP to a child neurologist who confirmed transient Motor Tic Disorder (not TS as no vocalisation). His tics became known as 'his habits' and he has coped with these waxing and waning. Weirdly his tics seem to disappear in summer and be at their worst in winter! He has coped at school but was referred to a Ed Psyc just before going to high school as some anxieties had come out at school. Lately he has shown clear signs of OCD and I wondered if these changes were linked to his hormones? If so is it possible his motor tics will also become full TS at this time in his life? Should I go back to my GP? Was thinking of trying rescue remedy - does this help anxieties? Apart from giving him support I am not sure what would be hlepful right now.
