From that day forward his life became a hell of uncontrollable tics, urges, and involuntary utterances. Eventually he is diagnosed with Tourettes Syndrome and Obsessive Compulsive disorder, and Cory embarks on an excruciating journey from specialist to specialist, enduring countless combinations of medications in wildly varying doses. Soon it becomes unclear what tics are symptoms of his disease and what are side effects of the drugs. The only certainty is that it kept getting worse. Despite his lack of control, Cory is aware of every embarrassing movement, and sensitive to every persons reaction to his often aggravating presence. Simply put: Cory Friedmans life is a living hell.AGAINST MEDICAL ADVICE is the true story of one familys decades-long battle for survival in the face of extraordinary difficulties and a rigid medical establishment.
