Hi. I had an op. 3yrs. ago, which failed. My symptoms are getting worse, & are with me 24/7. My sleep is very disturbed, because if I wake up I'm unable to get back to sleep because of the spasms. I have " tonus " which makes it difficult for people to understand what I am trying to say.
I used to walk confidently with my head held high, now I keep my head down - partly due to embarassment & partly because people think I am winking at them. ( I keep walking past friends.) I do a lot of walking & my smile/hello has become a grimace.
I had botox before the op. but that didn't work.
I read that magnesium tablets can help, I do take those for restless legs so increased my dose from 250mg to 500mg. but after only a few days I had stomach pain & bloating. ( I have to be careful as I have diverticular disease )
I have also just read that a Chiropactor may be able to help me, has anyone had any luck going down that avenue ?
