Tourette - blinking only?

Is it possible for a person with Tourettes to only blink frequently? I have read the forum and found that many side effects are associated with Tourettes, but I need to know if it is possible for a person to only blink frequently. Does it get worse with stress?

What help should we be considering for a person who constantly blinks, possibly gets worse with stress.

Thank you for your time,

Daniel

Re: Tourette - blinking only?

Could you provide a little more detail? How old is the person you are talking about? How often do they blink? If asked, "why do they blink so often, what is their response?" Are there any vocal tics (grunting, clearing the throat, etc.) All of these could be nothing or a simple tic that will resolve on its own, transient tic disorder, or could develop into tourette's syndrome. As a note, I remember quite vividly blinking A LOT as one of my first tics. And yes, I have tourettes.
