Febrile Seizures and Tics

My daughter was diagnosed with febrile seizures at one week old. She took phenobarbitol until about six months old when she out grew the dosage and no longer displayed symptoms. She is now almost ten years old and has not had a seizure since infancy. However, within the past year she has started displaying frequent motor tics and recently vocal tics. Her motor tics started with blinking/rolling her eyes. They have progressed to neck shrugs and hand twists. Lately, she makes a "un" gutteral sound. The vocal tics are occuring as often as 1-2 times a minute. Is there any connection between her early seizures and tics?
