Excerpt: “… Given the phenomenological similarity with other subjective symptoms commonly reported by patients with TS (e.g., sensory tics or premonitory urges, obsessive-compulsive symptoms, “not-just-right” experiences, etc.) there is the possibility that systematic screening for misophonia in TS might reveal a pathophysiological association.”

    I just read the report on Misophonia and Tourettes. It says that “As far as the authors are aware, this is the first documented case of misophonia reported by a patient with a diagnosis of TS.” This was written in 2013.

      Hi Laura, amazing!

      Why not write to the team conducting the research and find out?
