The vast majority of sufferers of tourettes syndrome actually have some kind of tic, or OCD. It will change over time, and the person has to be very aware of what they are doing.
My son suffers from tourettes, and while he was growing up, he stretched his face with a facial tic to the point that he came down with impetigo. Later, in high school, he couldn't walk through a door without turning around 360 degrees after entering the room.
The difference however between OCD and tourettes is that the the OCD person gets no comfort from their OCD. The tourettes' sufferer is actually soothed by whatever their OCD is.
Life's a banquet and most poor bastards are starving to death!
