Q.

7 year child

My niece is 7 years old. I have noticed that from around 4 she had a problem with always clearing her throat, after a while she started a jerking motion on one side of her body, now recently she started with a barking sound and when she is asked to stop she says she cannot and as no control of it, from a week ago she has now started with the continours nodding of her head. Her mom has made an appointed with her Dr. but I am very concerned about this. Please advise.
