Treatment of tics: Does sound like tics- they come and go (usually get worse when under stress or a new situation), and they can even change in type over time (like go from eye rolling to blinking to facial twitches, to clearing throat). If they are disruptive enough, medications like clonidine, topiramate, and others do help but can have side effects like drowsiness.
