My daughter suffers from recurring torticollis. Her neck gets "stuck" to one side for about 4-8 hours and it's very painful and scary for her. It first occurred when she was 6 weeks old and then happened, like clock-work, every six weeks, until she started walking (about two +) and we started massage therapy and homepathic treatments. Now it happens without warning (about every 6-9 months), but is preceded by a couple of days of disquiet and then vomiting just before the neck spasm occurs. x-rays have not shown anything untoward. Have any of you DS supporters out there experienced something similar. If so, can we compare notes please....
