I was diagnosed with hemifacial spasms and cervical dystonia which is part of Tardive Dyskensia. I am no longer on antipsychotic meds but the symptoms have not improved. My neurologist wants me to have Botox injections. My appointment is later this month and I am scared. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
I do suffer from tardive dyskinesia I am not quite sure what cervical dystonia is or hemifacial spasms are... my dyskinesia symptoms are chipping involuntary tongue thrusts 24/7... I was told it has been caused by side effects of years of taking anti depressant drugs... I have never been on anticycotic meds... I have not had any luck with anything that makes it stop... Very very frustrating and to say the least painful... hope to hear from u best wishes
