Customer Question

I suspect I have dystonia. For years I have uncontrollable blinking in my left eye. Then my jaw became affected and it is very difficult to stop moving my jaw back and forth. Now the muscles in my left neck are affected. They keep tightening up. I feel like I should be able to stop these symptoms, but I can't.

Hi Carol. What medications are you currently taking? Do the muscle relaxers help with your symptoms?
