Pls give comments if you can.
If he has full blown gts then he should still have tics with his head even if he is paralyzed from neck down.
As far as it being frustrating? Well, his situation is a bit different but I can imagine it is frustrating for him.
I too have ts (severe at times) and have severe back issues from a back surgery from 2009.
The tics multiply my pain level many times over but my pain management doc all but ignores that fact.
Hope that helped at least some.
