    Did i have a stroke or what? Can't move my eyebrows good.

    Ok so i was becnhing heavy and my partner gave me just the tiniest amount of help on the 3rd rep to get it up(took like 10 seconds) anyway i felt a tremendous amount of pressure in my head as it was going up like my head was gonna explode. But at the time i was just like "WOW. aWESOME INTENSITY!"

    however, when i got home, i realized my eyebrows didn't move good. Thought maybe i strianed my face muscles out cuz i was grimacing really hard. So, next day, still the eyebrows don't work. Next day, only slihjtly more function. Third day, the same, so i got the doc to see me, and he asked me a bunch of questions, and he said it was not a stroke cuz it would be one side or the other. Plus he said since i did cardio the next morning that that would have most likely caused a huge stroke or killed me if it was a mini-stroke.
    So he said i prolly just strained my face muscles. So i left there happy, but when i got home i just had that inner voice thing that said "No, he's and idiot, get a second opinion." just like when he told me my tricep wans't torn and then the next day the specialist said it was.

    That was 3 days ago and the shit's still the same. Im going to call tom'w and make him order me a cat scan and MRI or somthin. i have also had a little sligh headaches here and there.

    Anybody else have facial paralysis after excersise or heavy bench?

    years ago part of my face froze, when i smiled only half of my mouth smiled the other half stayed the same, i didn't think much of it for a few days (stupid) a friend told me to check it out, i went to emergency turns out i had something called bells palsy. its an infection of a specific nerve and it causes facial paralysys, if not treated could stay permamnent. now this didn't happen while i worked out but this info. may help you anyway, hope it does. good luck.

    Yeah, i can feel them. But they just arent contracting. It's weird.

    Kloter1, havent been on my laptop in awhile. I been using my moms computer. I prolly will be on this week cuz Im off from work. Good thing im off too. Plenty of time to get my tests done.

    I think i bursted some kinda blood vessel that was connected to a nerve. Is that even posssible? I dunno.
    I blame it on the Valsalva maneuver. Its a powerlifting breath technique where you hold it through most of the concentric part of the movement. Im just gonna exhale all the way through the rep now like a chick, i don't care, this sucks. It's always something. Figures this happened right after i start lookin good again. Damn.
