Does anyone have a LO with a tic disorder/tourettes or family history? My nephew on my husbands side has multiple tics such as eye blinking, shoulder shrugging, abdominal tensing, throat clearing and due to such was recently diagnosed with tourettes. I don't know much about tourettes so I started researching out of curiosity and now I'm worried about my son. He's only 2.5, but as of late I've noticed he'll randomly raise his right shoulder. I know this could be nothing, but reading about how tics start and could progress has me feeling anxious. Im so afraid this is his "first tic" and his tics will grow into something more, and I don't want him to get made fun of or have a difficult childhood. Tourettes is also associated with co-morbid conditions such as OCD, ADHD, and anxiety disorders so that makes me feel even worse. I wouldn't be as concerned, but these things have such a huge genetic component and it runs on my husbands side.
