Maybe someone can explain this to me....I have an electric massager that has a flat disk that I recently began trying on my face - mostly because the "numb" feeling was annoying me but also in hopes of having something positive happen from it. I didn't think anything was happening so for 2 days I didn't do it - those 2 days my eye was more droopy and I had dryness issues with my eye. I also had noticed on the day following one of my first times using it the next morning my eye looked nearly normal at the start of the day....as the day wore on it began to get that familiar droop, but when I got up in the morning it was nearly identical to my other eye!
I'm assuming that the nerve repair is inside my ear canal and skull - that the nerves ON and UNDER my face would not be needing to regenerate or repair themselves....so I had hoped I wasn't doing any harm to things. But IF my using this device I'm helping to bring tone back to my eye (and I do allow it to go right next to the eye - feels rather strange, but not a bad feeling.) and help in other ways, I'm glad for it. I also oddly enough sneeze when I go close to my nose on my cheekbone - and I've read about blocked nostrils in the forum....I'm wondering also if this is helping to keep or wake up my tear and saliva. I DO have a tiny amount of tears in my AN eye...I can yawn really big and feel a slight tear production (a habit from wearing contact lenses and having dry eyes - I could always yawn and make my eyes tear up....)
FWIW - this is working for me...maybe it's something others could use?
