    Happy Easter from Canada! Sorry to hear about your condition. I had my HFS on my left side. Got gradually worse before I finally opted for the surgery, which was a success. But tried to put up with it for the first 7 years. Unfortunately, the condition only seems to progress. My lip also started to twitch on the left side and occasionally the chin. In understanding the condition of HFS, the only "cure" is surgical intervention to buffer the nerve and blood vessel. Go for the cure!

    I too have drooping to the right side of my mouth, this has improved slightly after I had the MVD Ooperation 3 weeks ago.

    The twitching went instantly after

    the op, but so did 70% of my hearing in the right ear and this is accompanied by a rather loud tiinnnitus.

    I am still holding out hope that my hearing will return, but then again I am an optomist.

    I would be interested to know if you come across any remedies for this drooped mouth.

    Hi Sue,  

    Dropped mouth is usually called Bell's Palsy and this condition sometimes accompanies HFS (most particularly after surgery but sometimes at other times).  It is something which normally just gets better on its own but some doctors prescribe steroids for it after surgery.  My understanding is that this does not normally get worse, it gets better!
