Tic Cough In Children
Yes.: Tics of some kind occur in up 25 percent of children at some time and spontaneously resolve. If the tic persists or there are other signs such also having movement issues, they are frequent and last more than a year or new tics develop over time this is something that should be evaluated.

16 y/o. I have a mild breathing tic so when I eat I feel like I am aspirating some but I don't cough. Am I aspirating or just paranoid + pneuomia risk?

Pharmacology: Tics are repetitive, involuntary, stylized, motor movements involving a single or complex group of muscles. Chemicals that are stimulatory in nature, such as caffeine or methylphenidate, may excite muscle fibers to contract more easily. Brain control of muscle firing may also be increased with these substances. Tics are worsened by stimulants, not caused by them. See my health guides on panda's. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I was just wondering if it is likely my children will have a motor tic as I have a undiagnosed tic ( I believe it's from stress and or sleep deprived)?
What is the reason why children develop tics, does it have to do with trauma or neurological damage?
Neither or both: Tics can occur developmentally around seven years old and dissipate by teenage. However, severe motor movement disorders can be caused by panda's, or inherited as a disease such as generalized anxiety disorder, ocd, or phobias.
