For a long time now I have been “gurning” - pulling my face, pouting, holding my jaw in an odd way so I am always catching the inside of my mouth on my teeth etc etc. It is pretty much permanent and I sometimes find myself with my tongue sticking out or dribbling. The phrase “bulldog chewing a wasp” has been used.
Very attractive indeed
Like I said, it has been there for a long time - probably since the catastrophic relapse I had in 2010 that triggered my DX - but was the least of my problems then what with not being able to walk hardly at all and ****ing myself on regular occasions etc - but as my major problems have reduced in their severity my face pulling and jaw clenching remains. It definitely became worse in the last couple of months following a (relatively mild) relapse then.
I will be mentioning it to my Neuro next week but, before he laughs, does anyone here recognise this as one of the glorious spectrum of MS symptoms or is it just that I am a natural munter?
By heck, is there no end to what MS can do? It really is the gift that keeps on giving of diseases isn’t it?
