c.usually a family history

>Twin studies, adoption studies, and segregation analysis studies all support a genetic cause for Tourette's disorder. Twin studies indicate that concordance for the disorder in monozygotic twins is significantly greater than that in dizygotic twins. That Tourette's disorder and chronic motor or vocal tic disorder are likely to occur in the same families lends support to the view that the disorders are part of a genetically-determined spectrum(Kaplan & Sadock)

 

It is unlikely to get self injurious behavior in Tourette syndrome.. :)
