Hi, I was wondering if someone could tell me what may be wrong with me. First of all I am a 20y old male, good shape, except for one thing, my mouth. I have been having this problem with my mouth for as long as I remember. My symptoms are, soreness or cramps in my left cheek and a vibration feeling in my upper left lip which feels like my nose is pulling my lip up. These symptoms usually occur when speaking or smiling, which makes it very difficult to speak sometimes, and also make apropriate facial expressions. (because my lip shakes alot and my cheek cramps-cause lots of anxiety). Also my saliva seems to come out more than it should when i talk(from the side of the soreness). As far as doctors, I have gone to the neurologist, and the doc told me I may have hemifacial spasm but she wasnt sure because my lip twitching isnt noticable enough to diagnose (but i definitly feel something). Can someone please help me I am going crazy because I cant find anything on the net that resembles what I have. PS. I have had surgery to take my 4 molars and an extra tooth growing underneath my front lower teeth, but the doc says this doesnt have anything to do with it so..... Also very uncomfortable to smile, Also Facial MRI and CT came out fine

  • Have you had this problem since birth? You said you have always been this way. Were you premature or were there complications with your birth? If this is a life long thing it sounds as though you have a very, very mild form of cerebral palsy. A person can have CP even if they only limp. CP can occur before, during or after birth, it is brain damage caused through lack of oxygen to the brain or brain injury.Check out your birht history and then if you think this is what may be the problem I suggest you see an acupuncturist, symptomes can be help with this medicine. But be sure they know what they are doing. With *all* CP cases a needle needs to be placed in the crown of the head, if this isn't done the practitioner is not competent enough to deal with your case. Secondly, the less needles used indecates the practicioners experience. less needles the better. You don't need to look like a pin cushion to get miraculous results.All the best,searchingsam
