A thought tic or invisible tic as some people call them is basically were you get random flashbacks for example if I was to cross the road I would imagine being rum over by a car and could convince myself it was going to happen. Before anyone asks yes it is definatly a tic as I have mild but still present premonitory urges.

p.s. Premonitory urge is a sensation that most people with tourette experience just before the tic itself, almost like an aura before an seizure, they usually occur in the area were we need to tic however they can sometimes be more generalised, ie felt throughout the whole body.

The way you put it there makes it sound like PTSD.

Sometimes I get intrusive and unwanted thoughts and flashbacks of bad things that happened in the past but a psychologist told me I don't have OCD or PTSD so I don't know what it is?

Or: Thought Tics (orthotics) topic

I could not resist! I replay some stims that I have in order to review them. I did not know people with Tourette's did a form of mental rehearsal/replay. I will ask my brother, who has TS.

Interesting, bluaspie.

I'm not diagnosed with Tourette's but sometimes get these strange thoughts which flash in and out of my mind like a neon sign.

My 11 year old son was diagnosed as having high functioning autism and last year with the stress of being toward the end of school year. He got tics really bad. Like he was squinting blinking his eyes, nodding his head and sometimes wiggling his nose 24/7. His Teacher was really concerned. I asked him one time why he was doing that and he said he couldnt help it.

When the last school term finished and he got just to stay home completely the tics went away but they have started back up recently I have been told. I don't know how bad though and I don't know if it's tourettes or not.

Other Staff at the school who didnt really see him much said to me not to worry about it cause alot of the children on the autism spectrum do that squinting but I am thinking it is more than that and he should be taken to see a pediatrician.

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!

Sorry to hear that, but this thread is about thought tics (mental tics).

Oh, ok I thought, thought ticks was what my son has because they say he always does it when he thinking. Like concentrating.
