I have had it also, my granpa had it three times, the last time he had it some of the effects were with him for the rest of his life. The day i got it the night before i slept next to a open window in the late fall and the temp dropped low during a windy night.It shut down everything on the right side [note] careful eating or you will bite the crap out of your tounge. I had a hard time getting rid of it until a criopracter friend told me he could fix it, i thought yea right! he gave me a small box with two pads that you stick on the side of your face that you give youself a shock it makes the muscles contract. The more i used it the faster i recoverd. Like Rabbit Skinner said after you recover you may notice for a year or two depending on how bad you were affected that when tierd,cold,lots of laughing you may get cramps in your jaw,corner of mouth,eye may drop a bit but dont worrie what dont kill ya [and it wont] just makes you toughfer,good luck!
