Unhappy Could this be Tourettes?

My son recently has started having these symptoms: head jerking and one side face scrunching. It has been worrying me so bad. The other symptoms he has had for years: touching the nose, smelling his hands most of the time when he touches something and Throat clearing. He has ADHD and I know they can get a tic from his concerta, but this is ridiculous. The doctor said the throat clearing is a side effect from the medicine. These other symptoms couldnít come from the meds. It gets worse when he gets nervous. The last two years his grades has drop from A Ďs and Bís to Cís and Dís. I love him so much and I just want the best for him. I will be making an appointment Monday. I just wanted to get some feedback about this from those who has a child with tourettes or has it themselves.

Re: Could this be Tourettes?

Hi, you may already have the answers you by now that you are looking for. My son was just diagnosed las week with tourettes. It sounds very similar to what we have experienced. I certainly don't want to give you a diagnoses but just wanted to let you know it certainly sounds like something to look into.
