Ask a Neurologist and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello. When did you have this procedure done? How soon after did you notice the problem?
hi , i finished the treatment in 2011 because of this . Slowly over the months my face recovered itself without any treatment . I completly forgot about this as the first time when it happened I neve saw any video while i was talking or laughing . It was the just the response of people making me uncomfortable . So I didn; I had just on treatment of Tria home laser in September 2012 . My face
& the same thing happen ten times worse
Does this affect the lower lip as well?
yes , my lower lip was completly paralysed on left side , rather like bells palsy slight pulled towards Rt side
has there been any swelling? if so, where?
with steroid atleast all those fascciculation has settled but lips & whole mouth extremely funny when I still
i never had any swelling , on /off some burning pain now , probably because of the peripheral neuropathy
so this has been going on for 5 months? has it been getting slowly better or slowly worse?
hard to say , some days are better than other . The only improvement is the lower lip not as paralised as before
if this were related to nerve damage from the laser, one would expect slow recovery over 3-6 months. if it is taking longer than this, you should see a neurologist to rule out other possible causes or exacerbating factors.
I know , that's why i asked your opinion as its hard to get an appointment
I see. Well, I do think it would be worthwhile for you to follow up on this as the nerves should be healed by now.
If necessary, your neurologist can do a nerve conduction test (NCV) to test the health of the nerves.
Did you have any further questions for me?
