Bodies Out of Control five
Imagine that suddenly your head and neck start to twist - or your upper body jack-knifes forward. Or maybe your jaw feels like it’s going for a walk and your eyes slam shut - there’s nothing you can do to stop them. This is Dystonia. Not an Eastern European country but a rare brain disorder, which causes muscles to spasm uncontrollably. There’s no cure so sufferers become imprisoned in their own bodies.
