  • Amputees with TS

    I have a really odd question for anybody who knows the answer.

    I know there have been cases where people who have had limbs cut off still feel like the limb is there, but if a person has TS and lets say has a tic in their legs, would they still have the urge to tic their legs if they were gone? I'm just wondering since the disorder has nothing to do with any body part outside the brain.

    Re: Amputee's with TS

    The phenomenon you're alluding to is Phantom Limb Syndrome, and I have not come across any reports about how and if a person with Tourette Syndrome might experience PLS.

    Perhaps others might have information to share.
