Does Anyone Have Any Exercises To Keep The Face From Feeling Frozen?

Does Anyone Have Any Exercises To Keep The Face From Feeling Frozen?

I have Parkinson on the left side of my body. I have noticed my facial expressions becoming very tight and it is hard to smile properly. Does anyone have any exercises I can do to keep my face somewhat limber and not have that frozen feeling? Thank you.

Remember when U were little, and made faces at each other. Mom use to say, your face will stay like that.. That's what I do, to that Lady in my bathrm mirror...lol...She even makes faces back at Me..Seriously, it works to loosen those muscles...Try it.. I will send the, "Lady in the mirror to U."

Your going to laugh at this but I use to play a game with my grandchildren we called the funny face exercises. They would make a funny face then I would have to copy it. Don't laugh , it works.

Thank you. I try to smile but it is usually lopsided, but will keep on trying.
