I had a freaky incident on Saturday night. My mouth was twisted so badly that I couldn't talk right!
I do have a problem with my jaw from clenching my teeth. I wear a biteguard at night to ease it. I have pressure in one side of my jaw often.
I take Zeldox and Celexa, and this problem came on very suddenly after I had a drink. (I do not drink much or often). It lasted for about 3 hours, and didn't completely go away until I went to bed for the night, about 8 hours later! It was very embarrassing. What could it be????:confused:

  • What is Bell's Palsy?
    Bell's palsy is a form of temporary facial paralysis resulting from damage or trauma to the facial nerves. The facial nerve-also called the 7th cranial nerve-travels through a narrow, bony canal (called the Fallopian canal) in the skull, beneath the ear, to the muscles on each side of the face. For most of its journey, the nerve is encased in this bony shell.

    Each facial nerve directs the muscles on one side of the face, including those that control eye blinking and closing, and facial expressions such as smiling and frowning. Additionally, the facial nerve carries nerve impulses to the lacrimal or tear glands, the saliva glands, and the muscles of a small bone in the middle of the ear called the stapes. The facial nerve also transmits taste sensations from the tongue.
