I have been to the doctor about tourettes syndrome but he said that he would grow out of them but the problem seems to be getting worse. He is also constantly on the go, cannot sit still and has a short attention span am I worried over nothing

    Hi there. Seems like your sonsounds just like mine. Mine is 11 and has all the same symptoms of your son. I think my son has Tourette's syndrome. Kids with Tourette's can very well have ADHD too! He has had all these tics, grunts and squeeks since he was 6. I too was told he will grow out of it....he's a nervous child maybe...etc. 5 years on and it's still here. So early this year I bit the bullet took him back to the doctor and insisted on an MRI (just to rule out anything) he also had an EEG. Both results came back clear, thankfully. We are waiting on an appointment with a doc who specialises in Tourete's. We wil have a diagnosis before the summer is over! Best of luck to you, try not to worry.

    Ditto! i have a seven year old son who is a carbon copy of your son. I demanded that the GP refer him and we now have had a neurologist appt next month and CAMHS are doing a full assessment and will go into the school in Sept to assess him. If i were you I would go back to your GP and request that he be referred. Bless you and your son, I know exactly what you are going through, good luck!

    what could this mean? he was seen by cahms a few yrs ago who said its past and parenting. and im trying to pin a disability on him. he also ticks every box for odd .
