painful but a good sign i hope.

Saturday, January 07, 2012

since wednesday i have been having pain down the left side of my face it feel puffy and swollen,numb and tingling my left eye feels tired and achy and as a result i have been haveing headaches and a sore neck which i have been taking painkillers for.all tough it is very uncomfortable,makes it hard to think sometimes and others downright painful i am hoping it means the nerves in that side of the face is working again and not that the stress of aymans chicken pox as worsened my paralise on this side.i still canīt close the left eye propably when i try to close both eyes but when i look in the mirror i can close the left eye in a wink now.but try to close both eyes together the left eye doesnīt close fully.i am asking any of my spark friends(you maybe know susie)or any one who works or has experience with facial paralise if they also think this is a good sign though it is all very tiring and make even talking etc more of an effort i am being hopeful.for those who donīt know my left side of my face has been paralised since 1st doctor was on holiday last week plus i couldnīt go out to a doctor anyway because of aymans chicken pox but my sil will look after ayman for me to go on monday,have to do my IRN and have iron injections which are both long overdue.still havenīt done my blog with my blogs for the year but plan to do it when my head is more clear.anyway that is how it is at the welcome.thanks again for taking the time to read my blog as usual. emoticon

    I am just adding what the rest have said, it is good that you are seeing your Dr, he/she is the best person to ask. Hope all goes well and also that Aymen is on the mend emoticon

    I'm not a doctor (I definitely think you need to go ASAP before it does become permanent) but it sounds like Bell's Palsy. I had this a couple of years back and all of your symptoms sound the same. It can become permanent if you leave it untreated (my affected side still looks and feels different)
Either way, DEFINITELY go to the doctor. Anything that has to do with pain in the neck or nerves of the face can be very bad. You can even have a bad tooth and not know it. If the tooth gets to that point, the infection is working it's way into your brain. You DO NOT want that. It will kill you.

    So Sorry love that you are going through such a dreadful time.
I think it is best to see your doctor .. as this could be symptoms of so many things ..
It is interesting that you have feeling where there wasn't any ...
I am so glad you can get to your Doctor ..
You really need a good check up my friend ..
I guess Aymen is feeling better .. and you can get some much needed rest !
Hope you are feeling better soon my lovely friend.
Love and Hugs Susie emoticon emoticon emoticon
