What causes facial tic disorder while suffering from anxiety?

Hello this is a bit embarassing to ask but how can you stop eyebrow raising tics? It s caused me to develop forehead wrinkles and i m only 26! I don t want to give people the wrong idea when they see me raising my eyebrows as they have in the past. I struggle with anxiety, ocd, and adhd as well unfortunately. What should I do? Thank You

Oncologist 's  Response

A genetic mutation can cause Tourette syndrome in rare cases. Abnormalities in the brain may also be responsible for tic disorders. Such abnormalities are the cause of other mental conditions, such as depression and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
