I have a random question. I know ADHD and Tourette’s syndrome are connected.
So are there people here with Tourette’s who can help me?
I have developed a neck jerking tic. And bc of that I have started questioning if I have Tourette’s or another tic syndrome. The thing is, I’m over 18. I have developed this tic just over the past few weeks.
I read about Tourette’s and I have seen that things like finger cracking, biting the inside of your mouth etc could also be tics. I have tics like that. I’ve had these ever since I’ve been young. I’ve also realized I’ve had vocal tics before but I’ve never seen them as real tics until now. I appear to have a tic of rolling my eyes too. I’ve never realized that before. I just saw it on myself recently in a video. I also don’t know when it came in.
I also have this thing where I hiccup without needing to hiccup. Is that a tic too?
Can someone help me with these questions? I’ve been thinking about having something of a tic disorder. But I’m not sure. I also find this really scary to talk about with my parents. And I try really hard to hold my neck jerking tic in when I’m near them. But it’s almost impossible. They haven’t noticed it though. At least not yet.
Does someone have answers?
