My daughter has just turned 6 years old and has also been diagnosed with what they "believe" to be tourette's. Are first step was getting her a referral to see a neurologist. When I finally received the referral to Rady's children's hospital in San Diego, they told me the earliest she can be seen is early June.
Since my daughter has presented with this I have been reading and researching and know that I want to have her seen by a Dr. that specializes in environmental and homeopathic treatment. I want to find out what is causing the Tics, not just treat them with a medication. I want to help her in finding out if this is a food sensitivity, allergy, environmental cause or stress.
The problem is I am having a hell of a time finding a Dr. on the Internet. There are so many claiming to be part of this spectrum but look more like an advertisement for women to loss weight and acupuncture. If anyone in the southern California area has any helpful suggestions please share. Or, if anyone knows where I can go to find a list of Dr. that specialize in this type of treatment please reach out.
