besides Tourette's Syndrome whatelse can cause tics? difficult child will have times where he shakes his hands and arms, wipe his face and shake off his hands or he will twitch his shoulders and head. now the face/hand thing started before he started the trileptal so i don't think it is medication related. at first difficult child said he was wiping bugs off his face and i thought uh oh delusions but the more i watch him these tics happen when he is having 'bad' days. i think it is a nervous reaction. today the one on one even noted that his handwriting was sloppy(usually he is a neat if not heavy writer)and that he was shaking his arms walking down the hall. so anyone else have this as a symptom and what was it attributed to?
