tourettes

brother who is now 14 is having sudden head jerking, eye blinking type movements, and unusual mouth movements. I was just wondering what this could be. when he was younger im guessing around 12 he started doing this thing where he just sniffed all the time like he had a runny nose but he did not. he would also blink his eyes quite often. and now he is having those other symptoms I was just needing to find out what could be causing these unusual movements.

Well, it could be a tic disorder. What you described is exactly what my son does.  He was diagnosed with chronic motor tic syndrome
