    The worse thing is the paralysis

    and not being able to be expressive anymore with my face. I used to have a lovely smile and now it's gone. I hope that it's temporary...It's been about a week and the paralysis is worse.

    I've had what is finally diagnosed as Chronic Ramsay Hunt Syndrome (ll) for 22 years. Maybe more. It is a very challenging disease. Not many people have ever heard of it...Doctors included. It is painful and debilitating.
