A 12 year old girl was sent to a psychiatric ward because she was suffering from violent spasms. When she was 23 she was finally diagnosed with dystonia. The chief executive of the Dystonia Society believes that up 40,000 people in the UK are affected by Dystonia. Sufferers tend to be referred to orthopaedic and psychiatric treatment instead of neurological treatment due to ignorance of the disease by GP’s.
