Default Jerks, drop attacks

Hello!
My son has been twitching since last year. (1-3 seconds) But since this summer he started having drop attacks. (1-2 second's) (The EEG came back normal)
But it's been almost a year from when we did an EEG. He also have Tourette's. Do you think that it can be a form of Tourrete syndrome?

I think the twitching could be Tourette's but if he's losing muscle tone for a few seconds when he has a "drop attack" it's likely a seizure. My friend who is autistic just starting having seizures but the seizures went undetected because the doc was too focused on the autism to think of anything else.
