What are tics? 
Tics are movements or sounds that you make without warning that you can only control to an extent.

Movement or motor tics can be simple, such as shoulder shrugs or touching things.

Complex movement tics affect more than one muscle group – for example if your arms and legs tense at the same time – or when several different tics happen together – such as twisting your body and slapping yourself.

Simple sound or vocal tics can include repeated sounds, such as throat clearing or making a specific noise.

Complex sound tics might involve making several sounds or sentences.
