As a neurological disorder, Tourette syndrome results in repetitive involuntary movements and vocalizations (known as tics). It is estimated that 200,000 Americans have the most severe form of the condition, and as many as 1 in 100 exhibit milder and less complex symptoms, such as chronic motor or vocal tics. Possible symptoms of this condition can include repetitive throat-clearing, facial grimacing, and grunting. In some cases, medications may help treat certain behavioral conditions caused by Tourette syndrome.
