Tourette's like symptoms
Been away for awhile.  Merry Christmast.

Lately, in addition to my spasms an jerking limbs, I have spouting out noises and often words and phrases.  Most of the time the phrases are meaningless.

Does anyone else have this going on.  Is this possibly another MS symptom or is this another neurological issue unrelated to my MS?

I don't know that I have ever heard uncontrolled vocalizations as part of the MS diagnosis but anything is possible.  More likely is you have something else going on in addition to the MS - that's just my uneducated, non-medical expert guess.

Be well and don't be a stranger,

Hi there.. I have to say that I myself have done this.. out of no where I will make a strange grunt or noise... or say some strange word?  I try to pretent it doesn't happen, it's quite embarrassing...my husband just looks at me and doesn't mention.  

but your post just reminded me to add it to my symptoms...the Neuro asked me to record them all.. thanks

if I find out why this happens...I'll let you know..OK

Anthing neurological can be part of MS.  But, I've mainly seen Tourette's-like stuff as a side effect of meds.

Now what you may be having are simple motor and vocal tics, and not full-blown Tourette's.  These thing  have been reported in association and caused by MS.  Your neuro needs to know about them.

To be honest, I spent about eight months making a "TSK!" sound with my mouth.  This was pre-diagnosis, but I was definitely having some symptoms.  It was usually when I thought of something that embarrassed me, or something I didn't like, but I seemed unable to keep myself from making these noises.  Very much like a tic, I think.  It was a physical response to emotional distress - but the distress seemed to keep popping up.

These days, I don't have that as often, but I still will make tik-a-tik-a-tik-a noises when my brain is stuck on something I don't want to think about.  Maybe that makes me neurotic!

That happens all the time.  If someone paid close attention someone could read my emotions by the way my body and voice reacts.

I wonder if it's another manifestation of emotional lability?  I certainly get more emotional than I used to, and I have less ability to deal with it.

I cannot help but cry during a lot of movies.  Sometimes my family wonder how I can be so emotional over almost nothing.

Also, watching news makes me cry more than anything else.

Watching the news would make anybody cry!  ;-)

I just get so angry!  Over nothing at all.  And I tend to obsess over minor stuff.  

So yeah, I suspect that you're dealing with a lot of emotional lability.  Knowing it's there really helps to deal with it.  There's also chemical helpers, which can do a lot of good - helping you to get over that hump.

I tried chemical helpers.  All of the make me too tired or more unhappy, some to the point where I want to off myself.
