Did the neurologists consider Tourette's syndrome and (explicitly)
rule it out?
Maybe more info would be helpful. For example,
Are these specific tics (maybe a better term than convulsive
movements?) always the same? Are the intervals you refer to intervals
between a whole stereotyped sequence involving all the tics or do you
mean that he does one or the other every 1-3 minutes?
