PD facial exercises

My PD nurse strongly advised me to start facial exercises every day, because it can make a real difference.I live a busy life, so I decided that the best way to include it in my daily routine would be when I'm driving every day.I started on Saturday,and did them as I was driving along the bypass of my local town. Having seen how awful my face looked in the mirror the day before, I suddenly realised that if I didn't time it right, I could give someone a terrible fright if they caught sight of me, especially the one where I look as if I have had a terrible shock, with my mouth and eyes wide open. It could cause an accident..... I must time it between oncoming cars. I know someone will catch sight of me one day. Oh well...too bad! Butterfly

Yes, Annebernadette, it is to help stave of facial paralysis. The PD nurse gave me a leaflet on the different exercises. She said it really does make a difference, as it does with any of the other exercises for our muscles. If you google "facial exercises for Parkinsons Disease, it has a few different sites. Butterfly
