The combination of unique signs and symptoms of dystonia, and lack of familiarity among physicians and patients alike can lead to missed or incorrect--including psychogenic--diagnoses. Dystonia can strike different body parts--from eyes to neck to torso and extremities--and can cause pain and may significantly interfere with normal function and diminish quality of life.
Increasing awareness of dystonia among clinicians, patients, and society as a whole will hopefully translate to improved treatment and therefore overall quality of life for people with dystonia and Parkinson's disease.
