My son is 10yrs old and has been diagnosed for 1 year. He has been on several different meds, most with little relief. He now has a new tic that pulls his body to each side (so his ribs and hip bone touch) it has been continious for the last 5 days. He has cried himself to sleep or stayed up until 2:30 - 3:00 am Crying in pain. I give him ibrpofen and/or tylenol otc for pain but it doesn't help. I took him to the Urgent Care last night cause of the pain, the dr made me feel stupid for bringing him in cause the tics shouldn't casue pain. But my 10yr old is in horrible pain. He has even lost 8.5 lbs in the last 3 months (we have been increasing his calories and giving him pedi-sure) So he shouldn't be losing weight.
Am I just over reacting and making him worse or do others kids have pain
(moderate to severe) with their tics? Any ideas, Im going crazy.
