Dystonia Society

Do i have dystonia?

Dystonia, correct diagnosis?

At around 13 I started to have my „nervous tic“: impulse driven head and neck movements. The impulses were soon felt all over: abdomen, legs, feet. Eyes very sensitive to light and jagged sights. Would this fit the typical dystonia characteristic? Some pain caused by movements but not so strong as to affect daily life

Have you seen a neurologist who specialises in movement disorders? You will need to get a referral from your GP.
