What part of your body does the focal dystonia affect?
My neck Plus I have head tremors
@russode I am dealing with focal hand dystonia. Doctors and experts don't know what to do with this one.
@russode it's a bummer...
@russode how old old are you if you don’t want me asking. I first starting getting Botox shots when I was 22. Did it for about 2 years every four months.
It’s such a trip because since they can’t just give you another dose right away and have to wait at least 3 months. At least that’s what they told me. As far as the long term effects I don’t think there is any proof or research that shows that there are any severe issues. I have heard of people even getting shots on the front side of the neck. I remember my fear would be swallowing food since I had read something about people haven’t difficulty. How long have you had the dystonia. I’m 28 now. Diagnosed when I was 22.
I have had the head tremors and my head being pulled in a direction for at least 10 years now but was told nothing could b done and not diagnosed until this year. When I was in so much pain was in tears they finally sent me to a neurologist who diagnosed me Do u feel like the shots are working for u the same level as when u first started getting them? U r young to have that to deal with.
