Alcohol Effects On Tourettes Syndrome
Yes: Lsd possibly affects serotonin receptors. Tourette's may be due to oversensitivity of Dopamine receptors. The relationship between serotonin and Dopamine is complicated. In my opinion, anything disrupting neurotransmitters should be approached very cautiously, if at all, and definitely supervised by a doctor. And, like with any street drug, can you even know it's really lsd?See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Many children who will develop tourette syndrome (ts) may first seem to have "typical" symptoms of adhd at age 6 or younger, which may result in their receiving stimulants. The average age of diagnosis of ts is about 8 years. Stimulants can unmask tics, so it may look like they are the cause. If vocal and motor tics continue even when the stimulant is stopped or start later, it is still ts.See 1 more doctor answer
Brain disease: Ts is a neurobiologic condition involving the thalamus in the brain, caused by inheritance, but occasionally by panda's. It's main symptoms are complex (several muscle groups moving involuntarily to appease a sensory compulsion) tics or motor movements involving various body areas, including vocalizations (complex vocal motor tics).Occasionally ts is debilitating, but most often it's treatable.See 1 more doctor answer
Gene mapping in: Families with multi-generational GTS shows many mutant genes, alone or in combination, cause GTS. The complex patterns of inheritance & associated neuropsychiatric & neurodevelopmental disorders are on omim. Org/entry/137580? search=tourette%20gene&highlight=tourette%20gene. Until whole genome testing is affordable, a Chromosomal Microarray is the blood test most likely to detect GTS mutations.
See a doctor: Tourette's disorder is a neurological condition that begins in childhood. Although there's no cure, you can live a normal life span with tourette syndrome, and many people with tourette syndrome don't need treatment when symptoms aren't troublesome. In troublesome cases, you'll need a physician to evaluate you for the available treatment options.
Syndromes differ: As opposed to a disease where we understand some basic pathophysiology, a syndrome is a collection of symptoms for which there is no clear underlying mechanism. Therefore a "cure" is harder to come by. That said there is nothing that doesn't benefit from proper nutrition, a clean environment and balanced lifestyle. Check with an environmental or functional doctor near you.
Most don't: Inappropriate sexual behaviors would be very rare for somebody with tourette syndrome unless they had a second problem.
D/w your doctor: This is best discussed with your doctor. The guidelines for Tourettes recently changed. A summary is here: http://www. Cdc. Gov/ncbddd/tourette/diagnosis. Html
Varies: Some pts develop their tics gradually over many months. Others get tics suddenly. Sudden onset of tics suggests panda's (see my health tips). Most often a single muscle group or area tics. Then they may change to another. In severe cases multiple muscle groups get recruited in the tic. Finally, vocalizations may occur in a similar manner - from simple to complex and intrusive.See 2 more doctor answers

Wow.: Tourette's has many symptoms. Obsessive thinking, poor social skills, motor movement problems (tics), complex tics, over focus, compulsions. Frequent strep infections may predispose to tourette's syndrome. See http://intramural. Nimh. Nih. Gov/pdn/web. Htm also see http://www. Ninds. Nih. Gov/disorders/tourette/detail_tourette. Htm for more info.
Depends: Any "street" drug is never what it seems. Unless you are 100% certain that what you are taking is "extacy, x, etc., ". ..That is, pure mdma... No answer any doctor can give would be accurate. Unless what you are taking is from a medical professional, you have no idea of what it really and truly is.See 1 more doctor answer
Tourette Syndrome: Is an inheritable Neurodevelopmental Disorder, caused by gene mutations yet to be defined. Diagnostic criteria = multiple motor tics & at least 1 vocal tic for at least a year, with no tic-free period > 2 mos. It is often associated with ADHD, OCD & other anxiety disorders. It begins in childhood. See www. Tourettesyndrome. Net for complete information & tsa-usa. Org for resources & support.
