I was told by a few of my doctors recently that if nothing works to try cognitive behavioral therapy. I remember when my sister was little she did it and it was s lot of recognizing she was doing an action and do something else. so I was wondering if anyone's done CBT for tics/tourette's and if it worked/helped at all?? I don't think something like that would work cause I know I'm having tics. I'm pretty good at either moving tics to other places when I need to or suppressing them all together. They don't happen constantly but they don't go away all the wat. They are worse at night, usually after suppressing them all day. (because I work in a kitchen and don't want to be waving around a knife all day😅😅) I do vocal tics and facial tics but the tics that are in my arms in legs I suppress them. but anyway, did CBT help anyone out there or is it not even worth the try.

      I was in CBT and personally it didn't help much with my tics. If you don't know why they happen, then it might help for that. But in terms of actually lessening them, it didn't really so much. This is just my experience though!
