Re: Could this be a Tic?
Hi there, usually when there is tourettes syndrome involved you notice it in your child around a young age. your child would be displaying certain tics such as grunting, facial ticking or grunting or repetitive movements that the child doesn't realize they're doing. You as the parent will probably recognize these signs or symptoms around the ages of 3-5. However, we noticed my daugters at the age of 3, and my son has barely started displaying some tics around the age of 5. However, if your child is on some types of medications for other issues such as ADHD, tics could be asymptomatic issue from the medications. For example, if your child has never displayed tic like symptoms and then all of a sudden shows symptoms after the use a a medication or medications. Document document document!!!! Keep your child's doctor apprised of the situation.
