Dropped head


#1

I was diagnosed with PD 2011. Luckily ive managed to lead a normal life and my symptoms under control until the last few months.
I had a really bad case of food poisoning which was ‘campylobacter
Enteritis’ since then I’ve gone downhill. I’ve read that this form of food poisoning can leave you with various illness’s. My main problem is I’ve developed a dropped head with excruciating pain in the neck. Don’t know if it’s related to the campylobacter infection but wondered if anyone has ‘dropped head? I was in hospital 6 days and diagnosed with cervical dystonia. But my own neurologist doesn’t agree . I’m having physio but my chin wants to be on my chest all the time and it’s been like this over 3 months now. I’d be grateful of any input.

Hi Sash,

I’m really sorry that you have had to go through so much after your food poisoning. While you are waiting for others to tell you about their experiences with cervical dystonia, you may find it useful to check out our website section on dystonia. It may give you some helpful suggestions.

Best wishes,
