    Male, 52, diagnosed with Lupus Feb. 2010 (Had it MUCH LONGER not diagnosed) Have Torticollis starting back about 4 years ago. On PREDNISONE dozens of times for Skin & Lung Problems. Been on CYTOXAN BI-WEEKLY for a YEAR, NEULASTA for 8 months, VICODIN on and off for 20 Years with Knee aand Serious Back trouble!
    TORTICOLLIIS Pain so severe Blood Pressure goes up to as high as 218/117... Current Have it and No Insuraance. On CELLCEPT and BENLYSTA only Have 10mg PECOCET for pain every 2 hours with NSAIDS and does next to NOTHING! ANY IDEAS as to HOW to Get BACLOFEN or BOTOX Injections in My Neck and under My Scalp to STOP THIS PAIN before I HURT MYSELF? I am sure people have killed themselves over Pain like this with No Sleep for Going on a week right NOW I am losing the ability to COPE AT ALL... Any Ideas are welcome!

    I saw a doctor online that was treating torticollis with an oral device. The muscles in your neck can be seriously affected by you TMJ. If there is an imbalance in your bite it can cause your TMJ to lock up and it can then move into your neck muscles. This may seem far fetched, but I have been a massage therapist for 9 years and I have definitely witnessed the connection between the two. Find a doctor, massage therapist, chiropractor or dentist in your area that does TM release and see if you have any relief. Worse case senerio, it doesn't help, but it promise it is worth a shot!

  • I went on this drug combination for a terrible case of poison ivy. The poison ivy has been helped, but I have widespread itching (with not additional rash) all over my body.
