Synkinesis due to RHS

Hi, I got RHS nearly 3 years ago. I used to be a level 6 palsy but after 2 yrs of acupuncture it is definitely better. However I nowadays suffer from Synkinesis: my right eye is smaller and twitches and the right corner of my mouth doesnt lift up. For instance when I smile only two theets are visible. I tried physiotherapist, electro- stimulation and excersises with no results. I guess now I am getting a bit depressed because my situation is stationary since one year and I can no longer improve. What treatments do you suggest? Is there any surgery I can undergo? Thank you in advance for your support.

  • I'm sorry you are still having problems. Have you tried Botox to dampen down the synkinesis?

  • I havent tried it yet but for what I understand and doctors advise, botox wont solve the mouth issue. It could ease the eye's situation only. Is there a surgery specialist you could reccomend?

    Thank you


  • Have a look at our page here: You can see some before and after pictures on the right. We can't recommend specialists but if you email then they should be able to point you in the direction of specialist centres which are closest to you. They won't be able to recommend though.
