I have Ramsay Hunt Syndrome for 14 years. When first diagnosed my Doctor did not believe Steriods nor anti-vitals would be of any good. I waited for weeks to attend Hospital and longer to get Physiotherapy. I was in terrible pain. I could not touch the right side of my head, face and neck. I could not eat properly as I had no feeling in my tongue. My earache was really bad.
To cut a long story short, I take Amitriptalyne to help with the Postherpatic Neuralgia. I still have problems eating, facial paralysis and earache.
