TOPIC: DBS for cervical dystonia

DBS for cervical dystonia 1 year 4 weeks ago #4104

I had DBS surgery on 7 Dec and am recovering well from the procedure. The stimulator has not yet been switched on. However, my dystonia symptoms have significantly worsened since surgery - particularly neck tremor while seated. Also, my head and face feel numb and pulsing, also while seated. I have noticed that the head symptoms seem to worsen following alcohol. Is anyone reading this familiar with DBS and the early effects to advise me?

Sorry to hear that your symptom have got worse. I'm seeing my consultant in 2 weeks to discuss surgery. How have the last couple of months since surgery been? Have you noticed a positive change since your switch on?
