That might be it.: Pediatric Neurologist can help. Some of them will see college-aged patients. Otherwise, a general Neurologist can help. Tics and Tourette Syndrome are sort of similar disorders, different degrees of severity. Unfortunately there hasn't been any good treatments, but maybe some new ones that Neurologists learn about before other doctors know about. Also, look up PANDAS (the disorder, not the bears).
