My question is:
Is it even possible to have Chronic Motor Tic Disorder with a tic such as shoulder shrugging or other muscle flexing habit that is there ONE-HUNDRED-PERCENT of the time? As in you hold up your shoulders with voluntary control from dawn to dusk, from waking to sleeping, and the tic never goes away? Not dystonia or some other horrible condition where muscle contraction is involuntary. But where you can relax your shoulder muscles to a degree but never fully relax and let go of them because your mind says NO-it is like a phobia.

I know this is a strange question but I just want to confirm my belief that it is not a possible feature of Chronic Motor Tic Disorder for a tic to last 100%.

Thanks for reading.
