Disabilities: Neurologically dodgy!

Tourette syndrome with other general neurological abnormalities, including:
CAPD traits
Mild Asperger syndrome traits/NVLD/social-emotional processing difficulties/dyssemia
Tactile issues
Irritability (used to have rages)
Distractibility
Absent mindedness manifesting itself as short term/working memory problems
Organisational problems
Possible Harry Benjamin syndrome/dysmorphia
Hypodipsia
Synesthesia (associated type)?

All very mild though - just some dodgy circuitry!

Ouchies. Can you describe what you mean by damaged?

P.S topic moved to general disabilities, neck injury is not a psych disorder.

Okay lol I thought I'd put it in the psych section because there's no neuro section (Tourette = neurological)

Anyway, now when I move my neck it clicks a lot and is sometimes stiff. Sometimes it even makes and sort weird noise (that I can't describe) when I turn it 8O :?

You might have a spinal condition, have you gotten X-Rays and been reviewed by an orthopedic surgeon?

Great idea, I should have made a General Neurological DIsability section. It still falls under the category of generalized disabilities for now. I will think of ways to make it easier for users to know where neurological disabilities that do not have a dedicated area go. I am thinking of making a dedicated Tourette's section. I might do that in the next few days. What do you think?

A neurological section is a good idea :D A Tourette syndrome section is a nice idea, but it's a bit specific it might look out of place because there aren't many other condition-specific sections.

Are there many people here with Tourette syndrome?

Not that I know of. Though I make condition specific sections for common conditions. It really is the members decision so I will start a poll in the DisabledPlanet.net discussion area. And let the members vote for one week. Then I will make the final decision.

I'm now due to have a neck X-ray next week, although I don't know how much they'll be bale to tell from that - I mean, it's not going to show unless one of the bones is actually broken or dislocated, surely?

X-Ray will help a lot, it can also show if any bones are malformed or if you have rotoscoliosis (rotation of the spine) scoliosis (lateral displacement) kyphosis (bowing outwards with an inwards curve) or lordosis (bowing inwards)

Most commonly found on a neck x-ray are rotoscoliosis, scoliosis and lordosis. Kyphosis is very rarely seen on a neck x-ray.

To be honest if I were them I would order an MRI of your neck as that shows soft tissue and nerves which would tell us if you have soft tissue damage or nerve damage.
