Diagnoses




At this time, there is no single test to confirm the diagnosis of dystonia. Instead, the diagnosis rests in a physician’s ability to observe symptoms of dystonia and obtain a thorough patient history. In order to correctly diagnose dystonia, doctors must be able to recognize the physical signs and be familiar with the symptoms. In certain instances, tests may be ordered to rule out other conditions or disorders. The kind of physician who is typically in the best position to diagnose dystonia is a movement disorder neurologist

The dystonia diagnostic process may include

Patient history
Family history
Laboratory studies such as blood and urine tests, and analysis of cerebrospinal fluid
Electrical recording techniques, such as electromyography - EMG or electroencephalography - EEG
Genetic testing for specific forms of dystonia
Other tests and screenings intended to rule out other conditions or disorders
