This is me in the hospital approximately 2 weeks after my first blepharospasm. They kept me in the hospital for 5 days for observation. I was frustrated in the hospital because I knew more about dystonia than the doctors that came to see me. My doctor in the hospital wanted to check if the dystonia was brought on by my subconscious. I spoke with many doctors and that was ruled out. The doctor that was overseeing my treatment did not believe in using botox. I left the hospital still not having any answers.
