I don't know--sounds like a reasonable hypothesis to me, as a lay person. And, you have a great attitutde.

I have heard that sometimes it is something that runs in families. I have a friend who has mild Tourette's and was only diagnosed last year at age 40, while his sister had the more obvious form of it and was diagnosed in childhood.

But I would guess that there are multiple causes and so little is yet known about the causes of so many disorders, anyway.

As the website I linked to says, often if the person's life isn't impacted much by the tic(s) then, no treatment is needed. That sounds sensible to me.
