    We are interested in knowing how many Forum members are themselves afflicted with TS, compared to the number concerned caregivers inquiring on behalf of a loved one.

    After voting above, check out the Medication Poll

    I wonder if there should be a "both" option. I have TS, and so does my brother.

    Thanks for the excellent suggestion I had not thought about, but you are quite right about more than one person in a family having the disorder.

    Are you aware of others outside your immediate family having TS...grandparents, cousins etc?

    No, which is interesting. To my knowledge, there are no tic or similar disorders among anyone except for myself and siblings. With the exception of a few slightly hyperactive cousins, I don't know of any relatives with TS.

    Of course it's difficult to know about past relatives who are deceased unless one hears reports from an observant living relative.

    BTW the poll has been modified based on your suggestion...hope you will cast your vote {BG}
