Hello everyone. I am a 58 year old female living in SW Virginia. I was hit crossing the street in 2003 and was unable to work until 2009. I worked at home taking cust service calls from Oct 2009 until October 2013. Was feeling good and no health issues except in 2012 I had surgery for carpal tunnel, torn meniscus in knee and skin cancer removed on face. Then in June 2013, I went to sit down and chair collapsed and twisted arm behind me and threw me to the floor on right side of face. Next day I went to Dr feeling like a bad whiplash and arm hurt. Saw many different Dr's and was told I had TMJ so I got a bite plate made. Pain kept getting worse and neck started to spasm and grab. Got migrane that lasted 8 weeks and base of skull felt like it was in vice grip. Finally in April 2014 I was diagnosed with a 40% tear in rotator cuff and cervical dystonia and started Botox injections. Then I developed cranial dystonia with blepharospasm in my eyes, Oromandibular dystonia, laryngeal dystonia, dysphagia and my esophagus is spasmodic. I recently read about the trigeminal nerve and wonder if that's part of my too. It's so crazy how a quick accident like a chair breaking can change your like forever! What's really crazy is the chair was in a nurse's office where my mother was being transferred from hospital to for rehab from a fall. That's my story and thanks for letting me share it with you.

Hi I'm Kyra. Finally at 25 was diagnosed with narcolepsy after I began having chronic migraines and falling asleep in dangerous situations. I am now able to have a full time job and even though it's a life diagnosis at least I am treating a cause and not symptoms now.
