What is Sindrome de Tourette?

Gilles de la touretteSindrome de Tourette is the Spanish name for Tourette’s Syndrome, which is called by several different variations in English, including:

  • Tourette Disease
  • Tourette’s Disease (the apostrophe in there indicates that the disorder is named after someone, in this case, Giles de la Tourette)
  • Tourette Syndrome
  • Terrets
  • Terrets Syndrome

But what is Tourettes? In any language, the movement disorder comes down to two things: those with the disorder either move involuntarily, makes noises involuntarily, or both.

It is also worth noting that there are many different manifestations of each category of tic. I’ve seen most of them in my own case.
