How to treat chronic rib constriction?

Have had spasmodic torticollis for 11 years, but before that and continuing is chronic rib constriction. It is causing anxiety and am seeing a doctor about possible anti-depressant tomorrow. I know these exacerbate dystonia. Any suggestions for my doctor?

Hi,

You need to be checked first probably by your doctor, with full history taking and some imaging to exclude any organic disease.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
