My 7 year old daughter has facial ticks/excessive blinking and occasional humming. I am starting to wonder if the flu shot has something to do with it. This is the 3rd year in a row where 1 week after she gets the flu shot, she develops facial ticks/excessive blinking and occasional humming. It does go away after about 1-2 months. Is this coincidence (time of year) or flu shot? Has anybody else encountered such behavior after the flu shot?
My son does have Tourette's although we are currently investigating possible PANDAS. This is our 3rd year in a row that vocal tics started right after the flu shot. We were told last year it was just a coincidence but after this year he will not be getting any more flu shots.
