I can see I am very fortunate to not have the extreme variety of Spasmodic Torticollis. But my head used to pull to the left, and down, and it was coupled with a tremor that I still have. I think honestly, by my Spasmodic Torticolus exercises, which many a mom has done on their babies with ST, has changed the degree of ST for me. I also walk about 6 miles a week which helps with all sorts of pain in my back and neck. Since I came to EC, I now use Magnesium and have been helped with both the ST, and the tremor. I take 400 Magnesium per day (right now have Mag. Malate, but prefer Glycinate) and also 200 mg per day of Mag. Citrate. I wish I could take all Citrate but it causes me to have diarhea.

My foods are full of anti-inflammatory properties, like Ginger, Turmeric, and Cinnamon.

I drink a home-made tea every day, sometimes 2 of the 1 and 1/2 Cup per day. The doctors also started me out on Botox, 2 in one side, 3 in the other, every 3 months, for about a year. I stopped those, because of lack of money to continue them, but continued on Clonazapam that the Neurologist prescribed.

I am still trying to get off my .5 miligram, but the calming effect when I get anxiety, or irritablility is hard to give up. But I take just a half of the .5 now, every other day.
