Muscle spasms or ticks

My brother is eight years old. He has developed this tick in his head/neck. It is involuntary, and he doesn't even realize that it is happening. It disappeared for a few months and how it's back again. It always twitches to the same side, and some twitches are worse than others. What do you suppose this is, and what can be the cause of it?

Re: Muscle spasms or ticks

You may want to check for Tourette's Syndrome. My neighbor's son has it and he has really bad ticks. He gets really bad headaches at times.

I hope this helps.
