Is Tourette's syndrome real?
Yes, I have Tourette's Syndrome and trust me it is as real as the computer I typed this on. However, not all people with Tourette's have copralalia (compulsive swearing), and that is considered (for no reason only about 8% of sufferers have coprolalia) the hallmark symptom.
Tourette Syndrome can be treated, but cannot be cured. Tourettes can be treated by medicine, making the tics less noticeable and less frequent. If tics are severe enough, the sufferer may consider DBR (deep brain stimulation) this is a surgery that yet again, will not cure tourettes, but will make it less noticeable.
If your boyfriend has tourettes syndrome in his family but he doesnt have it or show signs of it what are the chances your kids will?
No, not at all. Tourettes Syndrome is not dangerous at all. Someone with tourettes has occasional "tics" where their body jerks or they say something they don't mean to say. It is very difficult to control tourettes and scientists have only recently begun discovering how to help someone with tourettes other than using medication. Just because someone has a disability, it does not mean they are "dangerous" or "dangerous to be in a relationship with"…
I have Tourettes Syndrome and have been going to church all my life . There have been no problems regarding behaviour ,sometimes I get intrusive thoughts that I couldn't say in church but I can manage these so that i don't say them out loud . Im sure people with more severe tics may say thing out loud in church .
tics. a mixture of 2 or more motor tics and at least one vocal tic as the sole existence as either one may simply point to a general tic disorder. and the existe3nce of other disorders that often accompany tourettes may help point to tourettes as less than 40% of the time someone has "pure tourettes" which means tourettes without also such things as anxiety, ADHD, OCD, and a number of others
