Dystonia and Genetics

I have been very concerned about the possibility of my dystonia being inherited. I am estranged from my mother and I have no way of knowing if anyone on her side of the family had any form of dystonia. The last few times I saw her she was blinking excessively which may or may not be a sign. 

I am not concerned for myself, but for my two sons and I pray that this is not passed on to anyone else in my family.

Here is a copy of the Dystonia and Genetics pamphlet from the Dystonia Society Website.
