Patient

Q: Hello, my husband started to develop a spasm to the left side of his neck about a week and a half ago..about 4 days ago it has gone to the right side. he cannot keep still and his head keeps jerking uncontrollably. he has gone to the the hospital but they said there wasn't so much they can do to help. its kind of to the point where it even looks like he has tourettes, but a doctor said it could be a tic in his neck.. it has lasted almost 2 weeks, is normal for a spasm to last almost 2 weeks with uncontrollable jerking??
