Could this be a Tic?

My 14yr old son has starting 'moaning' 'grunting' when eating, he doesn't seem to notice it but we all do when we are sat down to dinner, my husband is getting quite annoyed with it and tells him off but my son genuinely gets upset as doesn't realise its happening. He doesn't have any medical problems apart from dyspraxia but his younger brother has ADHD and I have noticed for years that my 14yr also displays some of the social symptoms but is so well behaved at school that it has never become an issue that needs following up. I am not sure what to think, it could be embarrasing for him with friends and don't want that for him but at the same time, I don't think its something serious enough to get medical input for, does this sound like a 'tic' to anyone with experience of tics and is there anything anyone could suggest to help.

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.
