In brief: Medication for tics

What you are describing may be tics but you need to rule out latourette syndrome.
I recommend that you see a neurologist or a psychiatrist for an evaluation and diagnosis. There are medications that can help. Some tics can be treated with behavioral therapy. But when there are multiple tics, then medication is usually needed.
