The 1st signs...
So it started simply enuf. I woke up 1 day and my eyebrow started twitching - no biggie, that happens ever so often....well 2 weeks later, it was a pain in my ass....I decided to go see my PCP. He referred me to a neurologist...oh goody!
Of course, in these times a self diagnosis is also important, so I went to WebMD and entered a "twitching eyebrow" to see what would come up...by the time i went to the neurologist, my sister and i had diagnosed me with Bell's Palsy - WRONG! (this is why we don't have our medical degrees)
I went to the neurologist, he examined me and said that he wasn't too sure so i would have to have an MRI done. i ws still ok at that point, but i wanted something to stop the twitching - because at this point, it was embarrassing. It had moved!! The entire lower left side of my face was CONSTANTLY twitching/moving/vibrating...I couldn't take it...he prescribed some muscle relaxants and sent me on my way...I would be back in 2 weeks to get the results of the MRI.
