Facial muscles


#1
Hello Well it seems half my face decided to go on strike Saturday night ! I had half a smile and sounded like I was drunk. I hadn't touched a drop! Started with a tingling in my shoulder and spread up my face. . didnt like it too much! Luckily seeing my neuro next week . . . Will have to pound it out at the gym and see what happens as although my feeling has come back along with my speech my smile hasn't fully recovered .. . Any thoughts or suggestions????!!!!! Thanks Godrevy xx

Thanks Turnip but saw my neuro today def PD had new meds added to the mix now got to start mirapex. . So we'll see if that helps along side my sinemet. Thanks for your concern. Godrevy

Hi, Godrevy --

I've had the lopsided smile effect temporarily a few times.  But Mirapex has worked wonders for me, so I hope it will do the same for you!  I'm taking a heavy dose of it now, building gradually over the years, along with small doses of Azilect and Sinemet.

Good luck!
