COVID lockdown has led to an “explosion” of stressed British kids being diagnosed with tics.
Parents and health experts now worry the “young have been sacrificed for the old” during the pandemic.
Doctors across the UK are witnessing a “worrisome upshift” in the number of children developing tics and other “troublesome” issues, according to The Telegraph.
Dr Alasdair Parker, president of the British Paediatric Neurology Association, said: “The most severe tics disorders I have seen over the last 20 years have all presented in the last five months to my practise.”
He revealed that paediatric neurologists and mental health specialists are using the word “explosion” to describe the influx of children presenting with problems during lockdown.
Tics are involuntary muscle movement and body jolts which can develop into tourettes syndrome.
Tourette’s is a neurological condition which affects the brain and nervous system, and is characterised by involuntary movements and noises called tics.
Kids normally begin showing signs of Tourette’s at between 10 and 11 years old, and the condition continues into adulthood.

We’re in this together and we have to get out together – COME ON PEOPLE – ENOUGH!
