Tourette Syndrome – Aya

I choose this issue because I have seen some people have TS, and sometimes I wonder why this is. I think this is important to me because some of my family members have it too, and so do I. This is important to me because as I said I may have some of this, thats why i want to learn more about it and have I can prevent this by happening when I am with other people. This can affect teenagers because they can get teased if they have TS that look funny.

I learned that tics is a neurological disorder where a person has both motor and vocal tics. Scientists and doctors don’t know the exact cause of tics, but research suggest that, when theres a problem with how nerves communicate in the brain, the chemicals in the brain, that carry nerve signals from cell to cell. TS is not contagious. You can not catch it from someone who has it. Scientists and doctors think the genetic disorder means it passed on from parents to child or happens during development in the womb. People with TS usually first notice symptoms while they’re kids or teens. It affects people of all races and backgrounds although more guys than girls have the condition. I think this is important for people to know about this situation.
