Please Read This Before Posting in Tic Parade

Your input into the Tic Parade will provide valuable insights for parents of children with Tourette, adults with Tourette in addition to health professionals treating persons with Tourette.

The Tic Parade is a library or encyclopedia of Tourette tics in which each tic is described by the person who experiences or observes that tic.

Some tics are preceded by an urge or sensation in the affected muscle group, commonly called a premonitory urge. Some with TS will describe a need to complete a tic in a certain way or a certain number of times in order to relieve the urge or decrease the sensation.

By providing insights into what is observed as well as what is experienced might help the person with the disorder as well as those living with the person cope and know how to deal with their tics.

When posting the description of the tic you wish to discuss, go to the appropriate Forum section Head and Neck, Torso, Limbs or Vocal and title your message with one or two words that describe the tic.

For example some topic titles could be:
  • Barking
  • Finger Flicking
  • Head Twisting
  • Shoulder Rolling
  • Choking Sounds
  • Abdomen Twitch


When discussing coprolalia, please use common sense in describing the nature of the words or terms being used. Although some latitude will be allowed in the use of the actual word or term, any exaggerated or flagrant use of profanity on the Forum will not be tolerated and postings will be removed.

Coprolalia - Involuntary utterances of obscene or inappropriate statements or words

  • Eyebrow raising

    Often I get this sort of tight feeling in my forehead, and to get rid of it, I have to raise my eyebrows several times. If I don't do it, I feel like I would get a headache (which may or may not be true, since I HAVE to raise my eyebrows and haven't been able to test if I would get a headache or not).

    Uschi:

    My son raises his eyebrows too, sometimes very high and usually repeatedly. Sometimes vocal tics join in

      Yes, sometimes I will blink my eyes, raise my eyebrows, all the while clearing my throat or making little noises.

        Ushi,

        I notice that if I dont raise my eyebrows when I feel the urge, I naturally rub my forehead sorta hard and that relieves the urge but I dont even notice that I did it. Is that just me? but I understand that tense feeling in your forehead before you tic, I have the same feeling.
        The other day at a local grocery store, I saw a rack with books on it and one of them said, "pregancy for dummies"............

          Adam, sometimes I'll rub my forehead as well. Other times I just have to raise my eyebrows. I don't always get the tense feeling before doing it, but most of the time I do.

            maybe putting something cold would loosen it or maybe something warm then maybe you would not do the tic I don't think this tic is something to be worried about
