Separate those: Criteria for tourette syndrome are multiple motor tics and at least one vocal tic for at least a year with no tic-free period of more than 2 months. Obsessions are recurrent thoughts that cause distress because they are seen as inappropriate or intrusive. Compulsions are repetitive behaviors done to neutralize the anxiety-provoking obsessions. Adhd completes the classic triad.

We used to think there was a closer relationship between ocd and tourettes. Seems similar in that there is a building of tension /anxiety followed by a muscular release. Maybe affecting a motoric area of brain
