Facial Spasms


Last night I got a bit of a shock. The left side of my bottom lip went into spasm, and the whole of the left side of my face looked and felt odd. Now I received treatment for my Oromandibular Dystonia on the 18th September, so I was not expecting this to happen so soon, as Botox injections last for around 12 weeks, and at the moment I am on week 8.

When I woke up this morning, my face felt and looked normal. Which gave me some relief. However after eating my breakfast I can already see and feel the spasm tugging at my bottom lip. It is in an extremely strange sensation. The only way I can describe it, is to imagine you have bad cramp in your lip and at the same time someone has a piece of string, which they have attached to your lip, and they pulling down on it.

On the positive side of things the spasm was nowhere near as extreme as it was before. I am hoping that as I have noticed the spasm happening at an early stage, I will be able to be referred for treatment and receive it before the spasms get to an extreme point.

I have set up my blog to help spread awareness and bring light to this condition. This blog will be full of all my experiences that happen during my dystonia and chronic illness journey, from natterings, musings, moans, laughs, highs and lows. :-) It will be a little bit of everything
