User rating for this question
Hi. For the past 3 Yeats I've had some sort of neurological issues with symtoms as right side sensory deprivation (whole right side), mild loss of strength, headache, smoothing of right nasolabial fold, drooping fight corner of mouth, slurred speech, hoarse voice. Also the arch under my right foot has become 'higher' and I can't fullt extend my fight thumb. Nothing specific found on LP, MRI (with and without contrast) or CT angiography. SEP normal. All along I've also vad pains in the left side of my face, to the point I've vad a couple of episodes with pÃ¥ in so severe I haven't been able to talk. Last night was very bad bit thankfully I vad one Lyrica (25 MG) left which I took with 2x400mg of paracetamol. The pain subsided bit this morning I woke up with a bump on my left lower jaw and the left side of my race mildly swollen. Looking for some kind of explanation as for what the swelling could be and IF the problems with the left side of my face and the right side of my body could be connected? I have a picture of my face with the swelling.

Brief Answer: Need more details... Detailed Answer: Hi, I see your questions has not been attended for quite some time which is a rare occurrence on this forum; perhaps its due to the complexity of your symptoms. To summarize, you report that you have neurological symptoms - sensory impairment with mild weakness on the right side - going on for 3 years. Do you mean you have intermittent spells or have you had the complaints going on persistently for years? I would also like to know your age and gender and if you have any other risk factors associated - diabetes, high blood pressure, heart illness, high cholesterol, thyroid abnormalities or vitamin deficiency. I am sure your doctor would have checked those. I would also like to know why are you on lyrica? Is it for the pain? If so, how much and how often are you taking it? I am sure this once side facial swelling is not due to lyrica / paracetamol. Neither does it have any connections to your past neurological complaints. If you can describe this bump further - exact size and shape of the bump, whether or not the margins clear and defined, do you have pain / redness / itching associated, and any other details - it can help me relate conditions better. Off course, a picture can be helpful. You might upload a good quality picture of the face and a close up of the bump. Awaiting your response... Regards
