Hello everybody. I am new to this forum. Recently, my 6years old son started having tics and we are worried that it might be TS. We are extremely worried and devastated - hopefully prematurely and unnecessarily. I wanted to ask you all about the genetics of this thing. It is described as a genetically passed disorder. How is it in your case? If you have a confirmed case of TS, have you had any cases in your family? We could not find any such cases in our family so what does that really mean? What else could this be? Please help. We are worried sick!!!
