Wondering if anyone knows of any new meds for this..im 27 female, was Dx at age 12...(was considered the FREAK, nobody knew of this then)this went away for yrs and now this last few months its came back with a bang!!! i know its worse with stress, and i have been off meds since i took myself off them at age 15...i had a horrible side effect from one of the drugs thats now off the market, it made my teeth rot out..and i would sleep for days, really days..fun huh..lol anyhow, my family is starting to give me that look now again,if you have this illness you know the one im talking about..the one where they try to ignore the outburst but cant help but stare... my tics are vocal more so than anything.so this is very embrassing, like at school functions, and i had to stop my college classes due to this. they told me i was too loud and it bothered others....i chalk it up to pure ignorance! i used to control them to a certain extent, now i cannot,My life is stressful, very much so. i have a 2 year old who has CP and doesnt walk. im still adjusting to that...Just looking to talk to someone with the same issue. or to update me on meds...I HATE MEDS but i think i may have to give them another try due to the severity of my tics..and to be able to live normal again, wothout the damn stares!.my body hurts from them and from lifting my child all the time..any advice from those who are aware of this and may can help me..
thanks in advance!
