Unhappy Tourette's Syndrome is terrible )-:

So I woke up this morning feeling ok but still a little achy here and there. Then, I had a head/neck jerk spasm and could hear little cracks and pops. Over the day I've felt dizzy, spacey, lots of anxiety/panic and a little short of breath here and there. I also took a Lorcet and that made me feel even worse (very dizzy).

Steven,

Have you tried Clonidine(Catapres) if not you dhould.
It is a blood pressure med that has been used for TS for years with much success. Start off with .10 or .20mg per day.
Good luck
Randy

Thanks for that. Yes, I have actually heard of it but your post acted as a reminder. I'll ask "Doctor NO!" about it the next time I see him and hopefully he won't say "NO!" this time.
