Three and a half days now since second Botox A treatment and (deep breath)… I’ve noticed some improvements in my head/neck positioning already:
- Head tilt. Much improved. Prior to Tuesday’s treatment, watching TV (of which I do little) had become very difficult, as everyone on screen looked like they were ‘running up and down slopes’. Head looks, and feels vertically aligned.
- Neck twist to left. Head still rotated, but appears much more central, when I am relaxed (for that read ‘slumped on the sofa’) than previously. Can do a more controlled, slow movement to right now. Well, actually, couldn’t do this at all before, without shaking.
- Sleep. Easier to go to sleep, as neck is not straining to twist all the time (is still doing this, but with significantly less force).
Neurologist feedback? Should notice a change in 3-4 days, with further improvements over next two weeks.
Even if things get no better than now, I’ve at least experienced some benefit.
Hope. That’s what this has given me. What can I say, except “Thank you”?
Break out the dressage test sheets. It’s time to get optimistic.
