Dispelling the myths about Tourette Syndrome
Tourette Syndrome is a neurological condition, the key features of which are tics and involuntary/uncontrollable sounds or movements. However, it's sometimes more widely associated with the relatively uncommon symptom of Coprolalia, or the involuntary utterance of swear words or other inappropriate remarks.
So, if only 10% of all people with Tourette Syndrome exhibit Coprolalia (which itself is not exclusive to Tourette's) what does the condition really involve?
