Glad to hear things are improving Peter.

I remember checking out the Reed Wrangler, but I'm fairly happy just using a standard mouthpiece now so I'll stick with that.

One thing I should have mentioned, and it may well be something you've noticed too, is that it feels worse when I'm tired. I tend to have an energy drink on hand when I'm due to play for any length of time.

And I'm not sure what Pablo's game is - copying a line of my post with a smirk. Seems like a troll to me so best ignored.

I wanted to bump this thread back up. Given the times we are living in "ordinary" medical conditions are taking a back seat and I'd hate to think someone is going through this for the first time without any medical attention. Bell's Palsy should be a good candidate for a virtual diagnosis and the treatment is usually affective. There's a lot you can do on your own to get the muscle control back.

For some perspective, at the beginning of February, my wife had one of her hands bit by a dog in the neighborhood. It hit a tendon and she is still doing exercises to get her grip back. I know if it had been a month later, we never would have gone to the emergency room.
