All my life I have had facial spasms. I look like I'm extremely dissappointed, the centre of my brow draws up and my eyeslids spasm too. When I was young this was very much worse, to the point that some days I simply couldn't see because I couldn't wrench my eyes open. My nostrils used to flare hard (which I finally solved by holding my nose shut for a few months whenever I flared it...I was becoming a social outcast). My major problem now is that my eyes squint super-hard when I'm in the slightest bit of sunlight. So hard that the blood vessels in my eyelids burst if I'm out for more than a couple of hours without my sunnies.
No doctor has ever taken me seriously enough to actually bother to diagnose this or tell me how to control it.
What could cause this? And how can I get my blinking doctor to take me seriously?!
