I don't really know the relationship but I am curious also. My daughter was just diagnosed with dopa responsive dystonia and it is treated with a drug, Sinemet, that is also used for Parkinsons.

My first symptom (of Parkinson's) 14 yrs ago was dystonia of the left foot when I walked. It responded to Sinemet so that's how the diagnosis was made
