Since August 2008 i've become "handicapped":I walk very slowly and my right leg lifts up like i'm going to kick at something before coming down. I cannot walk more than a few steps before stopping as my leg muscles stiffen. My back starts to hurt and even a cane doesn't help.The more i walk the higher the leg goes and the other leg starts to bother me too. I've been told that its a very rare disorder, no treatment and statistically 90% of patients who start with a lower limb dystonia see it turn into a generalized one. If I walk or stand too much I get the symptoms all over .
