Hi Nicola,

I'd make sure that they are aware that you may tic uncontrollably if you're not fully under. They then may decide based on available facts whether they can cope with you being awake.

My grandad had Parkinsons and cut his finger badly, he need a lot of stitches but his hand shook badly. The doctor took his time and stopped stitching when he was shaking, he was really good at keeping my grandad calm, he shook more as he bacame stressed.
I am sure if you make sure they are aware that they will have a way of coping without expecting you to surpress your tics .
