Neck rigidity is the most common cause of spasmodic torticollis. Increased muscle tone plays a vital role behind its occurance. Stress, physical workload or a sudden movement of the neck are the most common causes of spasmodic torticollis.

Hi lybrate-user you are afraid of something that has happened in the past and you have lost your appetite. You are not able to sleep at night and you are upset. You are afraid of something. To feel better consult a psychologist and explain about your fear. If the fear is too much for you to handle then consult a psychiatrist.

Then it starts affecting the persons psychological (emotions, thoughts, behavior) and physical (sleep, appetite, digestion, heart, metabolism, etc) well being.

You should never hold in emotions all the time and it is better you release it through tears. However, there could be a condition where you have to hold back your tears, but it is advised to hold it until you reach a better place to roll it down.

Hi it can be tough to lose a father and your wife is grieving the loss of her father. Your wife will need space and time to feel better. When your wife talks about what she is going through she will feel better. Crying can relieve stress and it will help your wife if she can consult a psychologist and talk about what she is going through. Therapy is a warm and comfortable space to talk about anything that is bothering you. Your wife will require counselling sessions. Contact me for counselling session. Along with counselling I can suggest natural foods to calm the mind.
