I have a four year old that is a very well behaved and sweet girl. She has always been extremely shy. The last few years we have had to move around quite a bit. About a year ago, just after we moved to Miami, I noticed she started having motor tics. I know this because I video taped them and brought it to the Pediatricians office who in turn referred me to a Neurologist. The Neurologist diagnosed her with transient tic disorder. After about a month or so I noticed the tics disappearing. Now we have moved to another city and she has started a new preschool and now I am noticing tics again (she is constantly smelling her hands). Could this still be tics? or maybe some sort of anxiety?
