Tic is an involuntary convulsion of muscles, which leads to an undesired movement or sound (known as a vocal tic). As the severity of tics vary, the discomfort caused due to the unpredictability of the sufferer can be really stressful. Tics involve facial tics, leading to twitching, grimacing and blinking, which can also be vocal in nature such as coughing or grunting. As Tic disorders are very difficult to live with, they are rightfully classified as a disability and are more common in boys than girls. However, you can ask for relief by requesting funds from the Canadian government.
What is a Tic Disorder?
Tic is a disorder during which the body parts start moving repeatedly, quickly, suddenly and uncontrollably. Tics can occur in any part of the body such as the face, hands, legs or even shoulders. However, they can be stopped for short periods. The involuntarily made sounds are called vocal tics, and most of them are hardly noticeable. In some cases, they are severe and frequent, affecting many areas of a child’s life.
Symptoms of Tic Disorder
As Tic disorder occur in children mostly, some of the symptoms of tics are as follow:
- Movements that appear repeatedly without any rhythm
- An overwhelming urge for making the movement
- Jerky movements, which include the following: a. Clenching of fists b. Jerking of arms c. Kicking d. Opening of mouth e. Curling of toes f. Sticking out the tongue
Tics sometimes look like nervous behavior and get worse with stress, some of the sounds may occur as
- Throat cleaning etc
As already mentioned above that the tic disorder can be quite difficult to live with, it can cause emotional and financial stress to both the victim and his/her guardians, especially if the victim happens to be a child. Luckily, the condition has been recognized by the Canadian government, and with their help disability benefits can be allocated to the sufferers and their guardians as some sort of relief from this horrible medical condition.
