Dystonia Diary

This is what it's like to have cervical dystonia - the good, the bad, and the ugly. Actually, there's nothing good about it.

Late update

I had my Botox shots last Tuesday - just 13 shots this time, instead of the 16 or 17 that I was expecting. It's only been a week, and I've had some pain relief, but there's been very little difference with the deviation. The full benefit won't be until next week, so there should be more improvement. If not, I can still get more if my Dr thinks I need it. The authorization is good until Sept 25.

My insomnia is still just as bad as ever - I seem to spend about as much time awake as asleep, waking up 3 times each night, and staying awake anywhere from about 30 minutes the first time to nearly 2 hours in the early morning. Hopefully I'll get more sleep as the Botox takes effect.
