Does anybody have blepharospasm and spasmodic dysphonia?


Posted by Jacqui Gross , Jul 03,2001,11:47   Archive
I'm just wondering. My blepharospasm & DS seem to work together somewhat. My eyes blink only when I'm talking and they're usually worse when my voice is worse. Botox helps with my eyes and my voice. I've always thought I had Meige's but the description doesn't fit me. I was just wondering if anyone has the same problems I do? Thanks for responding!! :)

Hi Jacqui,
I have blepharospasm, meige and respiratory dystonia. I have difficulty
breathing but SD has been ruled out. I am answering your post because my spasming seems to be connected as well. When the eyes are rocking,
meige kicks in and the breathing is labored. I'm convinced there is a
connection. Take care. Joanne M. San Diego, CA

There are many times my eyes will close when I'm talking to someone.
It used to make me so self-conscious, which only made it worse.
Now I just try to open my eyes, and turn my thoughts anywhere
but my eyes.
