Ambien "cures" Dystonia in Voiceover Talent
Dr. Gupta, what do you think?
On Nov. 30, 2009, I had a wisdom tooth extracted from the upper rear left. Soon after I noticed clicking in my jaw which was found to be TMJ displacement, but also I was slurring slightly. A neurologist suspected trigeminal and/or sublingual nerve damage. By July 2010 my speech had become so impaired that I could no longer do voiceovers. I'd been doing voiceovers full-time since 1986, before that radio as a DJ, before that I acted and voiced things in high school. I've voiced for Nissan, Lenscrafters, Disney, and literally thousands of commercials around the world under my professional name Tom Cassidy. I'm asking for your help. If you know of someone who might have the curiosity and skill to help solve this problem please send them my way. Please help. Thanks! Tom PS-this is how I used to sound: http://www.sunspotsproductions.com/SEARCHDEMOS/Demos/AN/Tom_Cassidy_AN.mp3 I've had botox injections and that seems to have helped or I've just learned to adapt. What's the connection between Ambien and movement disorders?
