I thought I would post a day by day account of my BP, so others can compare.
I woke up after having a cold/bad throat for about a week and noticed it was a little difficult to speak. I had a look in the mirror and thought it was because of the cold. By lunch time I could not grip a straw with my lips and one side of my mouth and my cheek would not move properly. I tryed to wink or blink and could only do it with one eye and when I tried to screw my face up it only did it on one side. I did think that had a stroke and booked an appointment at the Doctors. She gave me a course of steroids and gave me a leaflet that explains about BP.
My eye is a little worse today, I had a little control over my blinking yesterday and today it is almost impossible. It just continually streams that is quite a nuisence. I went and bought some surgical tape to tape it closed with tonight. It is far harder to get food in my mouth today as well as it does not seem to open as well as it did yesterday. On the plus side I do think I still have my taste on the left side. I get pins and needles and twitching around the area of my jaw and my forehead ATM. :cry:
But I was happy it was this not a stroke so im not moaning :D
