Im concerned about my 7 year old daughter, she has been having unusal tics for the last 18 months or so they seem to switch place at first it was her eye movements then her mouth now its her mouth and head. My brother was diagnosed with tourettes about 8 years ago and waching my daughter its like looking at my brother all over again. I dont know where to turn our doctor has shrugged off my concerns but my daughter is getting very self concious. Any ideas?
all doctors are shrugging me off too about my 2 yr old and all his symptoms. I KNOW he has tourettes ut no one will listen. How old is your brother? The dr's keep telling me that my son is too young to have it. No one will listen. What does your daughter's neurologist say?
