My 17 year old son has begun to develop what I believe is TS.
He had nothing when younger, but in middle school started to develop very slight, mostly unnoticeable,small
These would come and go, sometimes for months at a time.
The past year or so, these have gradually progressed into violent body movements and 'grunts', generally in the shoulder/neck and head area.
We're concerned and want to get some help, but don't know where to start.
I've begun to pursue an appt with a Neurologist ,but finding one who just won't prescribe pills and has experience dealing with this is becoming very difficult.
Does anyone have any recommendations on Neurologists in my area, based on their personal experience?
I live in the Southern Tier of NYS(Binghamton area). Would prefer a local physician , but I have no problem at all traveling. Whatever it takes.
