Yes some can get tics and twitches...but how severe is it? Tourettes is usually very severe...when i relax in bed at night with my night-time sleep aid...I get twitchy all over - with complete body jerks, arms and legs in different directions...

I use to twitch and do all sorts of unvolintary movement. When I started my antibiotics it stopped. One time I ripped a phone jack out of the wall becaukse I had a spasm as I called them.

Hi there! I jus wanted to say that me and one of my daughters have mild tourettes, like with me its more like I can't sit still very long I have to move or stretch certain muscles and sumtimes eye blinking and throat clearing jus all kinds of little twitches all ovr my body. I jus got put on sum more anxiety med I hope it helps me. My 11yr old daughter that does not have lyme has tourettes that is also mild but she wears a medicine patch on her back catapres is what it is and it really helps her which I'm so happy about because I kno from myself when I was a kid how hard it was to go to school and have everyone make fun of u because I was different, but I think if I can get my nervousness and anxiety undercontrol it will help me but I kno how u feel its very annoying and embarasing. I'd say lyme deffintly aggervates it if not causes it. There's jus so much that lyme disease can cause it sucks! But I hav found one good thing outa all this and that's this support group here I love you all I kno I don't post a whole lot but I usually visit this site two to three times a day I wish u all the best and hope we are over this mess soonSmile anyone that wants to talk pleade pm me I may not be able to answer sum questions but,ill definitly be your friend that u can talk to anytimeSmile good nite everyone
