My son is 5 1/2. We are new to TS also. We don't have a dx yet, although we and the doctors are pretty sure this is TS since there are several motor tics and some sniffing....but it hasn't been one year yet and we are not sure if the sniffing is definitely a verbal tic. But the neurologist pretty much prepared us that this is probably TS.
Anyway, I have been trying to learn as much as possible about TS. I keep reading about the psychiatric issues that often coexist with TS. My son definitely has an anxiety disorder and sensory issues. We are not sure about OCD or ADD. I believe I've also read that it is common to get Bi-polar disease with TS. I am just wondering if how often these comorbid diseases happen. Are there any stats on this? Anyone out there with TS who only purely has tics without other things? I just pray it only ends up being tics, anxiety, and sensory. It's already so much to deal with. I cannot imagine adding add, ocd, and bi-polar to the mix.
Thank you all so much. Andrea
