THE Tourette syndrome is unpredictable in that it can lead to motor or sound tics at particularly inappropriate times. While performing in concert on Tuesday February 21 in Frankfurt, Germany, singer Lewis Capaldi suddenly had tics (blink, shrug, shake of the head…), to the point of not being able to finish a song.
“ The Incident occurred as Lewis Capaldi performed his greatest hit, “ Someone You Loved “. Fortunately, his lifelong fans were able to sing the lyrics in place of the singerallowing him to catch his breath and regain his senses quietly. The moment, captured by a spectator, was broadcast on the social network TikTok.
Lewis Capaldi had mentioned his syndrome last fall, on his Instagram account. “ I do a lot of shoulder twitches “, he had explained, specifying that it strongly depended on his emotional state. “ The worst part is when I’m excited I have it, when I’m stressed I have it, when I’m happy I have it. It happens all the time “. And the singer to continue: Some days it hurts more than others and some days it hurts less. I have Tourette, always had it, apparently. Sometimes it’s quite uncomfortable… but it comes and goes “.
Remember that there is no cure for Tourette’s syndrome, only drugs to reduce the intensity of the symptoms. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) can also reduce the tics and behavioral disorders associated with the syndrome.
