I have been living with cervical dystonia for over 10 years. I have been through all of the medications and painful Botox injections and was approved for a deep brain stimulator 7 years ago. I was one of the lucky ones who has had major improvement from the implant. This is not for me but my son. He has severe dystonia in his arms, hands and now his head is starting to shake. I am looking for a support group for young adults out there!
