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.

Fairly good this time.

It's been about a month since my last Botox shots, and things are going fairly well. Not as good as I'd hoped, but there's been noticeable improvement.

Although I still can't turn my head to the left when I walk, I can hold it mostly straight. It still pulls back, but not quite as much as before. I'm pain-free, too, except for very minor aches from time to time. That's fairly typical after Botox.

I'm not getting as much "muscle relaxing" from the Botox, but as long as it still works at least a little, and I keep getting it mostly - or entirely - on the left side (where I need it most), it should be good.
