Some of the more common simple tics include eye blinking and other eye movements, facial grimacing, shoulder shrugging, and head or shoulder jerking.
Simple vocalizations might include repetitive throat-clearing, sniffing, or grunting sounds. Complex tics are distinct, coordinated patterns of movements involving several muscle groups.
Complex motor tics might include facial grimacing combined with a head twist and a shoulder shrug. Other complex motor tics may actually appear purposeful, including sniffing or touching objects, hopping, jumping, bending, or twisting.
More complex vocal tics include words or phrases. However, coprolalia is only present in a small number 10 to 15 percent of individuals with TS.
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.
Tics are often worse with excitement or anxiety and better during calm, focused activities. Certain physical experiences can trigger or worsen tics, for example tight collars may trigger neck tics, or hearing another person sniff or throat-clear may trigger similar sounds.
Tics do not go away during sleep but are often significantly diminished. Tics come and go over time, varying in type, frequency, location, and severity.
The first symptoms usually occur in the head and neck area and may progress to include muscles of the trunk and extremities.
Motor tics generally precede the development of vocal tics and simple tics often precede complex tics.
Most patients experience peak tic severity before the mid-teen years with improvement for the majority of patients in the late teen years and early adulthood.
Approximately percent of those affected have a progressive or disabling course that lasts into adulthood. Although the symptoms of TS are involuntary, some people can sometimes suppress, camouflage, or otherwise manage their tics in an effort to minimize their impact on functioning.
However, people with TS often report a substantial buildup in tension when suppressing their tics to the point where they feel that the tic must be expressed against their will.
Tics in response to an environmental trigger can appear to be voluntary or purposeful but are not. Although the cause of TS is unknown, current research points to abnormalities in certain brain regions including the basal ganglia, frontal lobes, and cortex , the circuits that interconnect these regions, and the neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine responsible for communication among nerve cells.
Given the often complex presentation of TS, the cause of the disorder is likely to be equally complex. Many individuals with TS experience additional neurobehavioral problems that often cause more impairment than the tics themselves.
For example, worries about dirt and germs may be associated with repetitive hand-washing, and concerns about bad things happening may be associated with ritualistic behaviors such as counting, repeating, or ordering and arranging.
People with TS have also reported problems with depression or anxiety disorders, as well as other difficulties with living, that may or may not be directly related to TS.
In addition, although most individuals with TS experience a significant decline in motor and vocal tics in late adolescence and early adulthood, the associated neurobehavioral conditions may persist.
Given the range of potential complications, people with TS are best served by receiving medical care that provides a comprehensive treatment plan. TS is a diagnosis that doctors make after verifying that the patient has had both motor and vocal tics for at least 1 year.

Der Name Gewitter im Kopf kam laut eigenen Aussagen durch eine Inspiration von einer ehemaligen Dozentin von Jan Zimmermann zustande. Die Dozentin verglich seine Tourette- und Epilepsie -bedingten Symptome mit einem Gewitter, das sich in seinem Kopf abspielt.
Tourette-Betroffene können im Alltag aufgrund motorischer und vokaler Tics immer wieder unangenehmen Situationen ausgesetzt sein. Dabei betonen sie deutlich, dass nicht jeder Betroffene einen humorvollen Umgang mit dem Tourette-Syndrom teilt.
Tourette syndrome or Tourette's syndrome abbreviated as TS or Tourette's is a common neurodevelopmental disorder that begins in childhood or adolescence.
It is characterized by multiple movement motor tics and at least one vocal phonic tic. Common tics are blinking, coughing, throat clearing, sniffing, and facial movements.
These are typically preceded by an unwanted urge or sensation in the affected muscles, can sometimes be suppressed temporarily, and characteristically change in location, strength, and frequency.
Tourette's is at the more severe end of a spectrum of tic disorders. The tics often go unnoticed by casual observers.
Tourette's was once regarded as a rare and bizarre syndrome and has popularly been associated with coprolalia the utterance of obscene words or socially inappropriate and derogatory remarks.
There are no specific tests for diagnosing Tourette's; it is not always correctly identified, because most cases are mild, and the severity of tics decreases for most children as they pass through adolescence.
Therefore, many go undiagnosed or may never seek medical attention. Extreme Tourette's in adulthood, though sensationalized in the media, is rare, but for a small minority, severely debilitating tics can persist into adulthood.
Tourette's does not affect intelligence or life expectancy. There is no cure for Tourette's and no single most effective medication. In most cases, medication for tics is not necessary, and behavioral therapies are the first-line treatment.
Education is an important part of any treatment plan, and explanation alone often provides sufficient reassurance that no other treatment is necessary.
These co-occurring diagnoses often cause more impairment to the individual than the tics; hence it is important to correctly distinguish co-occurring conditions and treat them.
Tourette syndrome was named by French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot for his intern, Georges Gilles de la Tourette , who published in an account of nine patients with a "convulsive tic disorder".
While the exact cause is unknown, it is believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors. The mechanism appears to involve dysfunction in neural circuits between the basal ganglia and related structures in the brain.
Tourette syndrome is classified as a motor disorder a disorder of the nervous system that causes abnormal and involuntary movements.
It is listed in the neurodevelopmental disorder category of the fifth version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders DSM-5 , published in Tics are sudden, repetitive, nonrhythmic movements that involve discrete muscle groups,  while vocal phonic tics involve laryngeal , pharyngeal , oral, nasal or respiratory muscles to produce sounds.
Other conditions on the spectrum include persistent chronic motor or vocal tics , in which one type of tic motor or vocal, but not both has been present for more than a year; and provisional tic disorder , in which motor or vocal tics have been present for less than one year.
Tic disorders are defined only slightly differently by the World Health Organization WHO ;  in its ICD , the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems , TS is described as "combined vocal and multiple motor tic disorder [de la Tourette]", code F Genetic studies indicate that tic disorders cover a spectrum that is not recognized by the clear-cut distinctions in the current diagnostic framework.
Tics are movements or sounds that take place "intermittently and unpredictably out of a background of normal motor activity",  having the appearance of "normal behaviors gone wrong".
Tics may also occur in "bouts of bouts", which also vary among people. They sometimes decrease when an individual is engrossed in or focused on an activity like playing a musical instrument.
In contrast to the abnormal movements associated with other movement disorders such as choreas , dystonias , myoclonus , and dyskinesias , the tics of Tourette's are nonrhythmic, temporarily suppressible, and often preceded by an unwanted urge.
The urges and sensations that precede the expression of a tic are referred to as premonitory sensory phenomena or premonitory urges. These urges may be physical or mental.
The actual tic may be felt as relieving this tension or sensation, similar to scratching an itch or blinking to relieve an uncomfortable feeling in the eye.
Because of the urges that precede them, tics are described as semi-voluntary or " unvoluntary ",   rather than specifically involuntary ; they may be experienced as a voluntary , suppressible response to the unwanted premonitory urge.
Children may be less aware of it than are adults,  but their awareness tends to increase with maturity;  by the age of ten, most children recognize the premonitory urge.
Complex tics related to speech include coprolalia , echolalia and palilalia. Coprolalia is the spontaneous utterance of socially objectionable or taboo words or phrases.
There is no typical case of Tourette syndrome,  but the age of onset and the severity of symptoms follow a fairly reliable course. Although onset may occur anytime before eighteen years, the typical age of onset of tics is from five to seven, and is usually before adolescence.
The first tics to appear usually affect the head, face, and shoulders, and include blinking, facial movements, sniffing and throat clearing. These stereotyped movements typically have an earlier age of onset; are more symmetrical, rhythmical and bilateral; and involve the extremities for example, flapping the hands.
The severity of symptoms varies widely among people with Tourette's, and many cases may be undetected. Because tics are more commonly expressed in private, Tourette syndrome may go unrecognized,  and casual observers might not notice tics.
Most adults with TS have mild symptoms and do not seek medical attention. Because people with milder symptoms are unlikely to be referred to specialty clinics, studies of Tourette's have an inherent bias towards more severe cases.
Compulsions that resemble tics are present in some individuals with OCD; "tic-related OCD" is hypothesized to be a subgroup of OCD, distinguished from non-tic related OCD by the type and nature of obsessions and compulsions.
Among individuals with TS studied in clinics, between 2. Among those with an older age of onset, more substance abuse and mood disorders are found, and there may be self-injurious tics.
Adults who have severe, often treatment-resistant tics are more likely to also have mood disorders and OCD.
There are no major impairments in neuropsychological function among people with Tourette's, but conditions that occur along with tics can cause variation in neurocognitive function.
A better understanding of comorbid conditions is needed to untangle any neuropsychological differences between TS-only individuals and those with comorbid conditions.
Only slight impairments are found in intellectual ability , attentional ability , and nonverbal memory —but ADHD, other comorbid disorders, or tic severity could account for these differences.
In contrast with earlier findings, visual motor integration and visuoconstructive skills are not found to be impaired, while comorbid conditions may have a small effect on motor skills.
Comorbid conditions and severity of tics may account for variable results in verbal fluency , which can be slightly impaired.
There might be slight impairment in social cognition , but not in the ability to plan or make decisions.
They are faster than average for their age on timed tests of motor coordination , and constant tic suppression may lead to an advantage in switching between tasks because of increased inhibitory control.
Learning disabilities may be present, but whether they are due to tics or comorbid conditions is controversial; older studies that reported higher rates of learning disability did not control well for the presence of comorbid conditions.
The exact cause of Tourette's is unknown, but it is well established that both genetic and environmental factors are involved.
Psychosocial or other non-genetic factors—while not causing Tourette's—can affect the severity of TS in vulnerable individuals and influence the expression of the inherited genes.
These include paternal age; forceps delivery ; stress or severe nausea during pregnancy; and use of tobacco , caffeine, alcohol ,  and cannabis during pregnancy.
Autoimmune processes may affect the onset of tics or exacerbate them. Both OCD and tic disorders may arise in a subset of children as a result of a post- streptococcal autoimmune process.
There is also a broader hypothesis that links immune-system abnormalities and immune dysregulation with TS. Some forms of OCD may be genetically linked to Tourette's,  although the genetic factors in OCD with and without tics may differ.
The exact mechanism affecting the inherited vulnerability to Tourette's is not well established. Cortico-striato-thalamo-cortical CSTC circuits , or neural pathways, provide inputs to the basal ganglia from the cortex.
These circuits connect the basal ganglia with other areas of the brain to transfer information that regulates planning and control of movements, behavior, decision-making, and learning.
Abnormalities in these circuits may be responsible for tics and premonitory urges. The caudate nuclei may be smaller in subjects with tics compared to those without tics, supporting the hypothesis of pathology in CSTC circuits in Tourette's.
Histamine and the H3 receptor may play a role in the alterations of neural circuitry. According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders DSM-5 , Tourette's may be diagnosed when a person exhibits both multiple motor tics and one or more vocal tics over a period of one year.
The motor and vocal tics need not be concurrent. The onset must have occurred before the age of 18 and cannot be attributed to the effects of another condition or substance such as cocaine.
There are no specific medical or screening tests that can be used to diagnose Tourette's;  the diagnosis is usually made based on observation of the individual's symptoms and family history,  and after ruling out secondary causes of tic disorders.
Delayed diagnosis often occurs because professionals mistakenly believe that TS is rare, always involves coprolalia, or must be severely impairing.
Pediatricians, allergists and ophthalmologists are among the first to identify a child as having tics,  although the majority of tics are first identified by the child's parents.
Patients referred for a tic disorder are assessed based on their family history of tics, vulnerability to ADHD, obsessive—compulsive symptoms, and a number of other chronic medical, psychiatric and neurological conditions.
An MRI can rule out brain abnormalities,  but such brain imaging studies are not usually warranted. In teenagers and adults presenting with a sudden onset of tics and other behavioral symptoms, a urine drug screen for cocaine and stimulants might be necessary.
If there is a family history of liver disease , serum copper and ceruloplasmin levels can rule out Wilson's disease.

Tourette syndrome (TS) is a neurological disorder characterized by repetitive, stereotyped, involuntary movements and vocalizations called tics. The disorder is named for Dr. Georges Gilles de la Tourette, the pioneering French neurologist who in first described the condition in an year-old French noblewoman. Results from a large, multi-site National Institutes of Health-funded study show that over half of those who undergo CBIT will have significant reductions in tic severity along with improved ability to function. Complete elimination of all tics and other Tourette syndrome (TS) symptoms is seen occasionally in CBIT, but it is not to be expected.
