recently diagnosed at 44
Hi,
A couple of years ago, I was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome, nothing major, ticks include neck twitches, Stuttering & a vocal noise(sounds more like snorting).
My question is, do you think long term prescription dependency could have caused this?
none of my family have ever suffered anything like this, to my knowledge & my parents knowledge I never suffered anything like this as a child.
The specialist that I saw believed that I had suffered it since I was young, but as far as I can remember this only started after being on Co-Codamol(30/500) and Tramadol(400mg a day).
I have now stopped the Co-Codamol meds, as I believe these have also caused me some mental health issues( different story for another day)
Any type of assistance/Help/Advice would be great.

Thnx

Hey Mark,
I'm grown adult and finding myself in a similar position.  I wonder if medicine caused the problem to begin with.  I am seriously concerned that the doctors will never admit the possibility. How are you doing now?
