Promethazine Dystonia Causes and Reviews


Dystonia is a movement disorder that causes involuntary contractions of your muscles. These contractions result in twisting and repetitive movements. Sometimes they are painful.

Dystonia can affect just one muscle, a group of muscles or all of your muscles. Symptoms can include tremors, voice problems or a dragging foot. Symptoms often start in childhood. They can also start in the late teens or early adulthood. Some cases worsen over time. Others are mild.

Some people inherit Dystonia. Others have it because of another disease. Researchers think that Dystonia may be due to a problem in the part of the brain that handles messages about muscle contractions. There is no cure. Doctors use medicines, Botox injections, surgery, physical therapy, and other treatments to reduce or eliminate muscle spasms and pain.

I got a Promethazine shot 4-5 weeks ago in my hip due to nausea and vomiting from a stomach virus. I now have a small lump-knot where I got the shot at and it is really sore still. I was told to massage it and put heat on it to make it go away but it doesn't help. Does this suppose to happen?
