Asperger's syndrome is a condition in the autistic spectrum in which language development is normal. Patients with Asperger's syndrome frequently exhibit repetitive movements stereotypies , and can have motor and phonic tics in addition to other behavioral abnormalities. We present 12 patients with autistic spectrum disorders who were referred to our Movement Disorders Clinic for evaluation of tics. Eight of the 12 had normal language development and therefore met criteria for Asperger's syndrome. All patients exhibited stereotypic movements; in addition, seven had tics and six of these met diagnostic criteria for Tourette syndrome. Of the six patients with clinical features of both Asperger's syndrome and Tourette syndrome, three had severe congenital sensory deficits.
Provisional tic disorder: MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia
Provisional transient tic disorder is a condition in which a person makes one or many brief, repeated, movements or noises tics. These movements or noises are involuntary not on purpose. The cause of provisional tic disorder can be physical or mental psychological. It may be a mild form of Tourette syndrome. The child may have facial tics or tics involving movement of the arms, legs, or other areas. The tics often look like nervous behavior. Tics appear to get worse with stress.

Lyme disease affects thousands of Pennsylvanians each year. We are dedicating more resources to educate residents and raise awareness; prevent the spread of Lyme disease; and develop a surveillance network. Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi and is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected blacklegged ticks. When detected early, Lyme disease can be treated with antibiotics.

Before I went to my doctor about it, though, I definitely thought that I was dying because this muscle was twitching right by where my pulse was.
