Cervical dystonia: NHS health questions answered

Getting up to 40/30 days for each leak of cerebral fluid

Cervical dystonia, caused by an over-inflated sphincter, is caused by a breakdown of tension pneumonitis, the group of nerves that runs through the cervix. When we reduce tension pneumonitis, we can relieve symptoms caused by cervical dystonia.

Cervical dystonia is a common neurocognitive syndrome characterised by muscle spasms in the lower face and neck, in multiple sites from the temples to the larynx. Similar to paroxysmal hypotension, the disorder is usually detected when patients feel an intense lack of blood pressure or doze off as a result of contractions in the neck.

Cervical dystonia causes over-inflated sphincter muscles in the neck that prevent blood flow from the surrounding tissues. These muscles are located in multiple parts of the neck including the lower jaw, armpits, muscles of the throat, chest and neck. They increase the pain in both the affected area and the rest of the body.

Normal tension pneumonitis symptoms include feeling pain or a rush of blood around the neck, itchiness, a burning sensation when swallowing, coughing, or a drooping upper lip.

Cervical dystonia can affect more parts of the body, but we usually start to see symptoms after 35 years of age.

Routine testing for both tension pneumonitis and cervical dystonia is difficult. The patients are predominantly elderly men. The doctors who are treating these patients do not always see the obvious signs.

Regular tests such as MRI scans, calcium magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, a lumbar puncture, and a spinal tap are not helpful, as although spleens are monitored, cervical dystonia is best diagnosed by blood work and neuroimaging.
