    i have tourettes syndrome but it is relatively mild. my main tics are finger clicking and shaking my head. my only vocal tic is clicking my tongue - i dont have a swearing tic.
    i want to apply for medicine but will tourettes syndrome be detrimental to my application (and would it cause me too many difficulties further down the line).

    ((i am already aware that surgery wouldnt be ideal with my finger clicking and therefore would not be specialising in this area.))
