Transcript of Chelsea "Cece" Bostic
Tourette (pronounced: tuh-ret) syndrome, named for the French doctor Georges Gilles de la Tourette, who first described the condition in 1885. A disturbance in the balance in neurotransmitters — chemicals in the brain that carry nerve signals from cell to cell — may play a role in TS.
Treatment for Tourette's disorder (TD) focuses on managing tics-helping your child and others cope with the tics. Most cases of Tourette's disorder are mild and will not need medical treatment. Finding the right treatment for Tourette's disorder can be time-consuming, especially if other disorders and problems such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are present. Because everyone who has Tourette's disorder has unique tics and considerations, treatment must be tailored to fit the child.
Who has it? NBA Basketball player - Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf (formerly Chris Jackson) was a leading free throw shooter in the NBA for the Denver Nuggets and Sacramento Kings from 1990-98, averaging 15.2 points a game.
In late 1992, the British Medical Journal published an article by endocrinologist Benjamin Simkin, M.D. (along with a disputing editorial by neurologist Oliver Sacks, M.D.) speculating that Mozart's love of scatological * language meant that he had Tourette Syndrome David Beckham also has tourette syndrome.
