I read about acupuncture, there's a specialist in my area who deals primarily with what I've got so I might talk to my doctor about it. I haven't actually been to MY family doctor, but I really like the lady I did see, so I'm not sure who I'm going to stick with. She was super prompt, it was a bit crazy because I just went to the walk in, but she put me on medication right away for two weeks and was pretty certain that because I came in within 24 hrs and took my first dose within 24 hrs that I'll be fine. I'm just wondering if I should have asked about an antiviral too, after doing my own research, but I'm not sure.
ANYWAY, the idea of acupuncture terrifies me, but I might try it anyway. Today the 'sensitive ears' kicked in and every time someone made a loud noise it was like tunnel vision via hearing. The GOOD news is that I can mostly blink now, I couldn't before, but my mouth feels even worse and I have absolutely no movement in my nose (one side, anyway).
