Lynn lives with Dystonia.

It took five years for Lynn to be diagnosed with Cervical Dystonia (Neck Dystonia), which causes the neck to twist painfully, pulling her head to one side. As her symptoms progressed, she was forced to leave her job.

She felt that she was ‘sent in circles’ round the NHS - nothing helped and doctors clearly felt her illness was psychological. Lynn only received a diagnosis of dystonia after contacting the Dystonia Society Helpline.
