Diagnosis of dystonia after long history of misdiagnosis

A woman sought a doctor's advice after suffering joint weakness and loss of voice. She became unable to write and was increasingly clumsy. The doctor tested her for MS but ruled it out. Eventually she suggested dystonia to her doctor who confirmed the diagnosis. The condition's difficulty is compounded by lack of awareness with sufferers often becoming quite reclusive rather than having to deal with people.
