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.


  1. And that is why I will not be calling you or Gabby if I ever have symptoms of anything...talk about asking for a misdiagnose:-) I enjoy reading from the beginning and the changes as they happened..I can't wait for the next episode...now are these episodes going to be daily or weekly??/ Just asking.....

  2. Talk about a misdignosis. Now I know who not to call, LOL. I'm loving this whole idea. I hope you keep going , so I will have something to look forward to.
