New to forum, opinion please

Postby Dpaterson9 » Thu Mar 08, 2018 9:28 pm

Hi all, I am new to this forum, I'm 29, I've had bad tics since I was around 20-21. When I get the tics I feel like I'm going to die and panic, I can go hours without any tics. Professional's I've seen have had varied diagnoses, some think it's Tourettes, others think the tics are due to anxiety, I saw a neurologist who said it was a functional movement disorder.

Please follow up with your Neurologist. He or she may refer you on to another specialist if this is outside their realm of expertise.
Are you currently on any meds or therapy for it? Avoid caffeine and alcohol.
Best of luck to you. :D
