facial muscle weakness
does anyone here have signs and symptoms of facial muscle weakness and been to any dental hospital for its treatment?

I have weakness of the lips, tongue and jaw although it isn't too bad except when sick or deeply fatigued. I expect most with KD have these weaknesses to some degree from barely noticeable to very challenged. But I haven't heard of any treatments for it.

I had jaw pain and found if I made sure to support my jaw while sleeping on my side it prevented the problem. Until then I didn't know there was such a thing as a "side sleeper pillow."
