Re: Tourette's in a 3 year old?
I am 26 and have had Tourette's since age 5. My friend has a 6 year old daughter with TS and she swears she has noticed her 1 year old son ticcing, so it is entirely possible that your daughter has Tourette's at age 3. Does she have vocal tics too (throat clearing, sniffling, snorting, coughing)? Both movement and vocal tics must be present during the same time period and the tics must last for at least a year to be diagnosed with Tourette's.
Tourette's may not show up on an EEG. I have Tourette's AND Epilepsy, so my EEGs are never normal, but I think that's because of the Epilepsy. I have tried diet changes, therapy, and medication, and medication is the ONLY thing that has ever helped with my tics. I take Haldol.
Blessings to you!
