  • Isn't that where half of your face goes paralyzed? My friend had that but it was temporary after she had given birth. I don't know much about it really.

  • Sorry, I don't really know much about but if ur having trouble dealing w/ it, maybe try 2 find a support group w/ other parents. They can be a source of support as well as giving u more info.

  • I had it and my first husband had it. It sort of sucks Mine was pretty painful. He didn't mention his hurting him. We both have a bit of a droopy eye. We notice it but others don't seem to notice it. How long has she had it? I read that symptoms go away before six weeks. If they last longer than that then it's possible the symptom won't go away. I got to wear an eye patch though. That was pretty cool. Of course I jabbed myself in the face with my fork while eating bc my mouth didn't open but I didn't hurt myself. It was just embarrassing. i still have pix. I wouldn't /couldn't smile without it looking funny so I have a very solemn look in the pix which is not like me at all!

  • My husband had this right after we went thru hurricane Katrina., It was horrible. We hadnt ever heard of so I thought oh no hes having a stroke., But yeah it is painful and to this day he still has problems with his eye and the nerves in his face...
