Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor and discuss if you may be depressed. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, exercise may help. Start with low intensity exercise such as walking and gradually increase the intensity as tolerated. Drink more water. Wish you good health!

Absolutely: There is nothing more important than your health. Despite common belief, work, spouse, children, etc are not more important than your health (because without your good health, these other things are meaningless.) what good do you provide when laying in a hospital bed? Sorry for being blunt. So if you believe the above, you can then work towards good health when partnering with a physician.

Look for Neurologist: Dystonia is a movement disorder with abnormal muscle contractions that lead to spasm and abnormal postures. There are many different types of dystonias and various causes for each one. A neurologist is the best place to start since it is primarily a neurological disorder which is causing the contractions. Best of luck.

Endless: There are significant political differences in the approach to healthcare. The current system is headed for fiscal disaster unless something is done. But the right wing frankly is lying about the current new program termed obamacare. If you can, put away enough so that public funding is not going to be needed. However, medicare will be here for sure for the next 50 years.

We all need to look at why we spend more than other civilized countries and get less. Relying on 'work' as the social force to pay premiums burdens the "industry" with costs, decreases the workers pay, and perversely causes loss of insurance for the worker adn the entire family when illness strikes. Physicians and patients no longer make the rules, and insurers are in the business of making mone

There are certain problems with the constitutional legality of parts of health care which is why the Supreme Court will make the decision for us shortly. The concept is good but it may have to be revised and actually read by the lawmakers this time before agreeing

A significant portion of the private end of the health care funding goes towards the 36% administrative costs (include high salaries, personnel to deny claims, marketing, obligations to stockholders) which is money not spent on care. Do you want a private, money oriented bureaucrat to second guess your insurance coverage, or a low paid, public orented bureaucrat?

Too late, but: If you are closest living relative, healthcare questions might be deferred to you; however, legally speaking, if there are other siblings /close relatives that have differing opinions, it's problematic. Every person should declare and sign (1) a health care proxy, who can make medical decisions in case the person is not able to. (2) a will. Also consider (3) durable poa / financial poa.
