Hi, my name is Morgan, I'm 19 years old, I just started developing tics like my head jerking to one side, my neck muscles tensing up, uncontrolled breathing, clicking noises with my mouth, blowing softly with my mouth, and hand shaking. So far neither my primary doctor nor neurologist have officially diagnosed me with Tourette's but they are both saying things like "most likely" and putting me on medicine that "suppresses the tics", right now I'm on clonodine and it seems to have a little control over them. I had one episode of twitching when I was 18 while I had pneumonia , but that only lasted 2 days. Now it has been going on for about a month and I have a feeling it probably wont go away on its own this time. I was just wondering if anyone with a diagnosis of Tourette's experiences sensitivity to loud or annoying noises and bright lights. Ever since the tics started I have had trouble with this. Dogs barking or baby's crying, sometimes the sound of certain peoples voices will severely irritate me and thus cause me to tic intensely. Also, I have noticed the sun irritates me way more than it ever has, I need to wear sunglasses most of the time, and bright lights like LED's or the flashing of a camera almost seem to "stun" me and cause me to tic as well. Does anyone know if this is common with Tourette's, if so is there a name for it?
