Customer Question
I have torticollis of...

I have torticollis of the neck and have had it for three years. I have tried everything and everyone to help it. I last went for a botox injection and now I cannot eat well or talk well. It has been six months. Will this go away by itself?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?

I have had it for three years now. No, there is numbness or timgling.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have had a stroke at one time without every experiencing any symptoms. I have been x-rayed and scanned all over without any clues to my diagnosis.

I think the torticollis which did not respond to botox needs surgical repair. If you can not eat or talk well you need to followup with your doctor as it might need physiotherapy or surgical intervention and as six months have already passed so it is not likely to get better on its own.
