Question Tourettes syndrome and epilepsy

Hello, i have a friend who has Tourettes syndrome, Tics and outbursts occasionally. He also has Grand mal seizures that the doctors cannot find out any reason why. Has anyone seen that Tourettes and Epelipsy go hand in hand?

Re: Tourettes syndrome and epilepsy

Hey

I have read of tourettes existing hand in hand with other disorders, especially OCD and other neurobiological conditions. As epilepsy has a neurological basis, I guess its quite possible that it can coexist with that. There are definately some similarities between the two conditions. Your friends tics may be related to focal epilepsy. Sorry I cant be of more help.
