A 21-year-old member asked:
My dystonia symptoms have been stable for five years. should i expect them to remain the same, or will they progress and become more debilitating?

Probably stable: My experience has been that dystonia gets worse around puberty. Once you get past puberty the symptoms get stable or even improve. If you got through puberty you are probably safe.

Diagnosis?: Dystonia can be a symptom of an underlying diagnosis. What is your original diagnosis?
