hi shernik, I have had rr ms for 18 yrs, one of my first things was the facial pain, heaviness, almost drooling at times. my tongue felt fat too. I went to a message therapist. it did not take it all away but it did help. sometimes I put a warm, wet washcloth on my face to help, it relaxes the muscles some. well ya still have ms. but trial and airier what works for me might not work for anyone else. good luck!View Thread
