Neck and shoulder Muscle Spasms

I have been suffering for a number of years with the above and it had got to the point where it was difficult to move my head. My head just rested on my right shoulder. During all those years I assumed it was part and parcel of fibro. Then one day whilst at the trauma outpatients clinic the doctor asked me what meds I was on for 'torticollis' I had no idea what he was meant. It turned out that is the clinical name for the neck dystonia problem and he was shocked that I had not seen a neurologist about it. He arranged the appointment for me and since then I have BOTOX injections into my neck muscles every 10 weeks. I get such relief for a few weeks it's almost magical. I also use a heat pad on my neck and shoulders which also helps. Hoping that this little piece of info may help one of my fellow sufferers! X

That sounds interesting, I'm glad your getting such great relief from it. I also have terrible shoulder neck issues. I will have to look into torticollis.

Thank you.

Hope you have a marvelous day××
