My 7yr old son as pretty recentaly started displaying at least 5 seperate motor tics.
Eye Scrunching: Started in Late september/early october, took him to optitians, his eyes are fine, a slight bit short sighted in left eye but not enought to require glasses.
Tummy Crunching: we thought his complaints of a "sore tummy" were a tummy bug, he was still complaining after a week so i took him to Dr's, she examined him agreed it was just a bug and just to wait it out. this was about 3 weeks ago. He did say that "my body is doing it anf i dont like it, i want it to stop"
Just last week he came home from school and within 15 minutes he was twitching badly, rolling his sholders, rolling his head, and twitching his arms up almost like how a T-Rex stands. i took some video footage of him.
we took him to see a GP last week, i let DS1 talk. he told Dr hius tummy and his arms were scrunching and he didnt like it and wanted it to stop. i showed the Dr the video and he said he would refer to a Pedi.
The school initialy dismissed my concerns but since then say they have noticed it too.
Called Dr's today to check up on the referal (they lost 2 of hubbys so i wanted to keep on top) and the Dr had not put it in the list, so they did it today and with in the hour i got a call saying the "Choose and Book" was done. so i go pick up the letter and get it sorted. he has an appointment for the 4th March. untill then we are in limbo land, the poor boy is complaining of back,neck, arm and tummy pain. he now has a warm water bottle to sleep with to help ease his overtaxed muscles but somenights that doesnt work so i have to give him paracetamol
Does anyone else have experinace of this kind of thing?
