I've been getting periodic facial twitches on the paralyzed side of my face. Is this a good sign?
It's not happening all the time, but throughout the day I will feel a quick twitch.

Has this happened to anyone before?  Huh

Shawna
Great you've started twitching.  From little twitches onto bigger twitches and more movement.

Very good signs, twitching is always welcome and means that nerves are starting to come alive again, good for you!

I've had loads of twitching over the last 3 weeks and mine's pretty much gone now, so yes, I'd definitely say a good sign Smiley

Hey Jodie
You're twitching is gone, or your BP is pretty much gone? How long did you have it for?

Thanks!

Hi Shawna,

Yes a good sign that things are sparking into action.

 I had a few twitches after the second week around my top lip and then a few days afterwards i noticed that I  had a miniscule amount of movement there. No one else could notice it - but I knew my lip had slightly improved and then eventually after a few more days the movement gradually became a little more noticeable and it all appeared to stem from the initial twiching.

Took another week or so to get strong enough to actually do much in terms of start to make a differnece to my mouth shape but it's getting there!!
