Any one have paroxysmal dystonia?

I was wondering if it ever goes away? I have MS so I'm sure I'm stuck with it, but does it go away for the rest of ya'll?

paroxysmal choreoathetosis is "potentially" treatable, try this link and otherwise try to search for this on yahoo and read up on webmd etc. Besides MS is typically waxing and waning disorder, though in some cases it can be progrssive. So for the former type the symptoms would come and go, wish you all the best with your illnesses, good luck  (+ info)

How to cure or treat Paroxysmal Nocturnal Dyspnea (PND)?

The treatment of PND, shortness of breath or labored breathing occurring when lying down sleeping, depends on its underlying cause. The cause of the PND (of which there are many possibilities) needs to be treated in order to control the PND. If you have not had a sleep study done or have not seen a physician to find the cause, you need to do so. Once the cause is determined, measures can be taken to help the PND.  (+ info)

What diseases/conditions include dystonia as a symptom?

I was diagnosed with cervical dystonia and I am trying to research to find out how I ended up with this. Thanks for your help.

Torticollis is another name for your condition. Try a google on it. From what I found, it can be secondary to an injury, or it can be hereditary - does anybody in your family have it? Also, like any other neurological condition, it can be related to more serious conditions, like Huntington's disease. Hopefully this will not be true for you. Good luck.  (+ info)

What is the relationship, if any, between Dystonia and Epilepsy?

Dystonia is a movement disorder that causes the muscles in the body to expand and contract involuntarily. This movement disorder may, in some cases be confused with seizures. However, can there be a primary causal relationship between the two? If so, what would that be? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dystonia can be caused by some of the same things as seizures are. Since Epilepsy is a disorder which covers a broad range of problems that cause seizures the two might be casually related this way. The only one thing that stands out positively is that dystonia can be a genetic disorder. Both can be caused by injury (specifically head trauma), inflammation, and a drug reaction. Since the cause of this is of yet unknown with the exception that it has a genetic connection and can be associated with environmental conditions too. There is allot more info available on wikipedia, and since this sounds more like a homework assignment please do the research that you find necessary. Good luck and God Bless  (+ info)

Has anyone been diagnosed with or know what dystonia is?

Can someone explain to me what the symptoms of Dystonia are and/or feel like? And if their dystonia came from medication side effects or because of something else?

Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder in which sustained muscle contractions cause twisting and repetitive movements or abnormal postures. The disorder may be inherited or caused by other factors such as birth-related or other physical trauma, infection, poisoning (e.g. lead poisoning) or reaction to drugs.
Symptoms vary according to the kind of dystonia involved. In most cases, dystonia tends to lead to abnormal posturing, particularly on movement. Many sufferers have continuous pain, cramping and relentless muscle spasms due to involuntary muscle movements.
Early symptoms may include loss of precision muscle coordination (sometimes first manifested in declining penmanship, frequent small injuries to the hands, dropped items and a noticeable increase in dropped or chipped dishes), cramping pain with sustained use and trembling. Significant muscle pain and cramping may result from very minor exertions like holding a book and turning pages. It may become difficult to find a comfortable position for arms and legs with even the minor exertions associated with holding arms crossed causing significant pain similar to restless leg syndrome. Affected persons may notice trembling in the diaphragm while breathing, or the need to place hands in pockets, under legs while sitting or under pillows while sleeping to keep them still and to reduce pain. Trembling in the jaw may be felt and heard while lying down, and the constant movement to avoid pain may result in the grinding and wearing down of teeth, or symptoms similar to TMD. The voice may crack frequently or become harsh, triggering frequent throat clearing. Swallowing can become difficult and accompanied by painful cramping.  (+ info)
