Torrette Syndrome

Were you looking for information about Tourette Syndrome? Torrette syndrome is a common misspelling of Tourette syndrome.
 
Tourette syndrome is typically a chronic and lifelong neurological condition that causes involuntary movements and vocalizations, called tics. Some symptoms of this condition can include repetitive throat-clearing, grunting sounds, and head or shoulder jerking. Symptoms of Tourette syndrome generally develop early in childhood, around age 7 and 10 years old. Because tic symptoms do not often cause harm, the majority of people with the condition require no medication for tic suppression. However, effective medications are available for those whose symptoms interfere with functioning.
