Dispelling the myths about Tourette Syndrome
Tourette Syndrome is a neurological condition, the key features of which are tics and involuntary/uncontrollable sounds or movements. However, it's sometimes more widely associated with the relatively uncommon symptom of Coprolalia, or the involuntary utterance of swear words or other inappropriate remarks.
So, if only 10% of all people with Tourette Syndrome exhibit Coprolalia (which itself is not exclusive to Tourette's) what does the condition really involve?
If you're curious about Tourette Syndrome, have any questions about the condition or live with it and would like to find more support, please post them here, so @Helen_TourettesAction can answer your questions.
