Tourette Syndrome Fact SheetUploader: Kazizahn 1 years ago Subscribe 9
Advances in imaging technology and an increase in trained investigators have led to an increasing use of novel and powerful techniques to identify brain regions, circuitry, and neurochemical factors important in TS and related conditions. During this period, the patient had experienced a feeling of "general nervousness" and uncontrollable movements of the right leg and had been diagnosed as having psychogenic tremor by a police force physician. Discontinuing neuroleptics after long-term use must be done slowly to avoid rebound increases in tics and withdrawal dyskinesias. On the other hand, our report suggests that adult patients with severe psychopathologic disorders but mild motor manifestations of TS can easily be diagnosed as having psychogenic ie, noninvoluntary movement disorder. Many individuals with TS experience additional neurobehavioral problems that often cause more impairment than the tics themselves.
