I was diagnosed in 2009 with dystonia, which is a neuro muscular condition that affects the control of your muscles, and often you are in spasms, depending on the type and area you have it. It can be in a singular area or in all the body like mine is which is generalized dystonia. I go for regular injections of botox which is expensive and I worry about the side effects / future but helps in the present. There is no cure, and it feels like im always tight and in spasms. I believe mine was brought on by trauma but I have always wondered the differential between the muscular issues and the nerve issues (which I blame on the spinal cord problems) How do I know what is causing my pain, the dystonia , or the spinal cord/ post fusion mess- I wish I knew, that would put my focus straighter. Any thoughts, in my case first came the injury then the diagnosis of dystonia, i worry its just a way out to not fix or a way to explain the pain levels. Confused
