Hi,
How is your son? What tests were done on the past? Most of the conditions you mentioned involve ENT and gastropulmonary issues. It would help to seek referral to such specialists and to rule out autoimmune disorders. Further evaluation may need to be done. Tourette's may be linked to problems in certain areas of the brain and associated with chemical substances such as dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine. Though not enough studies show the cause and association to the symptoms mentioned. Take care and best regards.
