dystonia

rotated image
this spasm woke me up and lasted about 5 or 10 minutes after I go out of bed, reheated some old coffee in my microwave onion and turned on my 17" MacBook pro.

The SNAP is with my SonyEricsson cell phone which just happened to be turned on in case my daughter phoned.

Adult onset of dystonia is more frequently focal and idiopathic. Wilson's disease related to liver problems also shows Kaiser-Fleisher rings
When someone has Wilson's disease, copper rings form in the cornea. These rings are almost always present when the disease is neurological in nature, and they are almost never there for any other reason.

Wilson's disease is an inherited disease that causes the accumulation of copper in the body.

The only two foods that we restrict in patients are liver and shellfish. Liver is very high in copper, while shellfish is intermediately high.

Patients should have their drinking water checked to make sure it isn't dangerously high in copper. We find that about 5 to 10 percent of samples, particularly well-water samples around the United States, are high in copper.

The advice here in Brumleby is to let the tap run until really cold.
