About 4 months ago the right side of my mouth started drooping. I was having a great deal of jaw and ear pain. Went to the dr they said it was a mild case of bells palsy. It never got any worse but there were days that seemed better then others. I started having pressure on the top of my head so my neurologist did and MRI which came back normal, I also had a head ct and a mri of my spine all normal, blood work normal as well. After approx 6 weeks the drooping was gone but returned after about two weeks...it comes and goes one day it seems fine the next my lip is drooping again. Went back to the neuro who agreed it was not bells palsy because it seems to vanish then reappear. I have started having head aches so now he thinks I am having complex migraines that are affecting my facial nerves however I don't know that I feel comfortable with that. I didn't have a head ache the entire time my lip drooped for 6 weeks so I don't undertand how it could be migraines...anyone else having the same issue?
