Hello, I’m Sylvia. I was diagnosed with cervical Dystonia in 2006, having had symptoms for six years, and various investigations, before that. I will always be grateful to the physio-therapist who advised me to ask my GP for a referral to a neurologist. I’m the only patient my GP has come across with dystonia. I was lucky enough to come across the Blue Mountains and Greater Sydney Dystonia Support Group through a newspaper ad in 2007, and have been a committee member of Dystonia Network Australia since its launch at the Parkinson’s Australia National Conference in Adelaide in 2015. I’ve written more about my experience with dystonia on the “Stories” page on this website.
