The Educated Patient - Mayo Clinic: Tourette Syndrome

Article

This site thoroughly reviews both motor and vocal tourette syndrome tics.

This site divides the explanation of TS tics into two categories—motor and vocal—and then further divides those categories into two more groups of tics—simple and complex. The detailed description of these TS symptoms will help patients and loved ones understand typical signs of the condition and how symptoms may change. The “Complications” section discusses other problems that are often related to mental health and may arise with TS. This resource also describes three treatment options for patients: medication, psychotherapy, and deep brain stimulation, which is only suggested for patients with very severe cases of TS.
