So I've had tics since elementary school. A facial tic where I would pull my cheek in and a vocal tic where I cleared my throat really loud. I started having more that were worse about two years ago. I'm seventeen now and I have many tics. Some include crunching my face up, arching my back and head back, hitting my chest and legs, twisting my shoulder in a circle, clearing my throat, clicking my tongue, making a high pitched noise, repeating ho-hey really fast and whistling. They are uncontrobale but I can feel them coming and I can suppress them for a short period of time. I'm going to a neurologist Monday but I just wanted other opinions before I go. (Everyone who has seen my tics say it looks like Tourette syndrome) It would really help if you could give me your opinions on if it sounds like Tourette syndrome. Thanks ~
