My father is suffering from hemifacial spasm for 9 months. He is constantly taking medicine. Some side effects are also being taken from the drug. Medicine is not making a difference. Want to consult how Permanent Relief will be done?

You need to see a physiotherapist and he/she shall relieve the patient of pain by electrical modalities and exercises and cryitherapy. Only medicines will not work. The tgerapist will also rule out s/s of any other cranial nerve involvement. Take care and feel free to contact.
