neck/throat

Gregory

Wondering if anyone else is or has experienced this: for about 6 mos. I have experienced numbness/feels like skin tightening on one side of my neck, face & throat. It doesn't hurt to swallow or touch, and it's not"classic" Bell's--my face isn't drooping. This feeling is always present, but gets gets worse about every 4th week(herxing?) I'm presently on Levaquin, seems no matter what med I'm on, symptoms are still there. My doc knows this& isn't especially concerned, but I was just curious if anyone else has ever exprienced this.?.

Sorry Gregory, that's one symptoms I'm not familiar with. My neck was sore , stiff, and tender, but not the way you describe. EVeryone is different. I can't comment on the levaquin,either.

I'm sure someone will come along that can offer some insight.

Are you seeing an LLMD?

Hi Gregory,

I think I've been having something similar although I haven't noticed a regularity in it's coming and goings. It feels like a numbness and it always seems to be there. I don't know what do do about it, but I guess we keep plodding on with our treatments and know that it will eventually? Ok, hope it goes away eventually. It's kind of annoying huh!

I have the same thing, my left side of my face goes numb, then my neck and throat. It goes away and comes back with no real rhyme or reason. The one side of my mouth won't smile all the way when this happens but nothing really droops on my face. I wish the numbness would continue around to the back of my neck where the pain in constant. I don't know what is causing it, it seemed to go away when I was on the doxy but I wasn't on it long enough for permanent help. Funny I started Mepron, Artemisinin, and Cats Claw Monday and today it these feelings are really bad. Hoping it goes away soon it is very annoying and distracting. Good Luck let me know if you find anything about it.
