On Saturday afternoon I went to meet sufferers from Dystonia, and their helpers, at the Burghfield Community Sports Club. Dystonia is a painful and unpleasant condition which gives people uncontrollable muscle spasms.
I was asked to make awards to sufferers who have shown bravery and stoicism in tackling this condition, and to talk to their partners, friends and helpers. I was happy to do a little to help draw attention to this condition, and will of course take up any matter with the NHS or Social care that they bring to my attention.
