RE: Diagnosis of Cervical Dystonia

Just this week I was diagnosed by my neurologist that I have cervical dystonia. I have never heard of this disease, illnesss, etc. I came home that day and started searching on the internet for more info about this condition. Low and behold, I was totally shocked as to how this affects anyone that has this. What I have learned so far, is that it is a real disabiling neck problem.
What is so weird to me is that back in the late 70's to 80's I had been rear-rended and had several whiplashes from these accidents. Even so, I never heard any dr. that treated me for the neck problems inform me that I had cervical dystonia. It seems that a lot of things have changed over the years with new and different diagnosis regarding neck injuries. Like I said before I am optimistic that the use of botox will be a very helpful in treating this disease. If anybody has been diagnosed with cervical dystonia I sure would appreciate hearing from you. Any and all suggestions are welome. Thanks, meaningfulc52
