Tourett Syndrome

Were you looking for information about Tourette Syndrome? Tourett syndrome is a common misspelling of Tourette syndrome.
 
If you experience repetitive involuntary movements and vocalizations (such as repetitive throat-clearing, facial grimacing, or grunting), you may have a neurological disorder known as Tourette syndrome. This condition affects all ethnic groups, but it typically affects men more often than women. It is not known what exactly causes this disorder, but it is believed that it may be hereditary. In many cases, the involuntary "tics" do not cause harm, and no treatment is necessary. However, there are medications available that may help to relieve some of the symptoms of this condition.
