Re: Anyone Have RLS and Tourettes too?
I have both Tourette's Syndrome (w/cursing) as well as RLS. I usually jerk my head back and forth violently and scream "F YOU!!!" (but the real word) to my room mate all day. Once, I was in line at the post office and screamed the "N" word and then turned around to see a huge Afro-American man behind me and I was so embarrassed, I could have just died right there on the spot!. As a result, I don't have any "real" friends and spend much of my time in the house. Sometimes I take Klonopin for the Tourette's and it seems to work (a little). I've just learned to live with it I guess but it sure is not any fun. I also suffer from alcohol addiction, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Hypochondria, Panic Disorder, Depression, etc.
