My son is 11 years old and has not been dx with tourettes

Customer Question

Hello, my son is 11 years old and has not been dx with tourettes but has had some mild tics since he was about 7 they would come and go moslty eye blinks. In the last year, it has been more blinks and sometimes a head nod and then his legs kick backwards every so often as well as arm punching out. He has no vocal tics and I was wondering if this is something that is not uncommon and if so, do children normally outgrown this? I do have a question about vocals thought when they say throat clearing is that a constant noise like over and over? He does have allergies and clears his throat periodically.
