Anyone else with Tourette's or Tics?

Postby Photo Mom » Fri Jan 25, 2008 11:46 am

I'm curious if anyone else has Tourette's Syndrome or tics as well as Tethered Cord and/or Chiari.

As I mentioned in my other post, my niece is a patient at TCI. During her last surgery I asked Dr. B if there was a relationship between her tics and her Chiari/Tethered Cord. He stated that there was a higher incidence of tics/Tourette's in his patients.

My 10 yr. old son was diagnosed w/ Tourette's at age 6 and we just found out he has Tethered Cord w/ a Syrinx (but no Chiari).
