Article Excerpts About Symptoms of Tourette Syndrome:
Although TS symptoms range
from very mild to quite severe, the majority of cases fall into the mild
category. The first symptoms of TS are usually facial tics - commonly eye
blinking. With time, other motor tics may appear, such as head jerking,
neck stretching, foot stamping, or body twisting and bending. It is not
uncommon for a person with TS to continuously clear his or her throat,
cough, sniff, grunt, yelp, bark, or shout. A person with TS may touch
other people excessively or repeat actions obsessively and unnecessarily.
A few patients with TS demonstrate self-harming behaviors such as lip and
cheek biting and head banging. People with TS can sometimes suppress their
tics for a short time, but eventually tension mounts to the point where
the tic escapes. Tics worsen in stressful situations and improve when the
person relaxes or is absorbed in an activity.
