  4. Hi, I am newbie here and was so pleased to see something posted about the mouth. I have had the deep lines around my mouth and also numbness in my upper lip. I have tightness on the left side of my face. Does anyone experience any pain and soreness around their eyes and cheekbones? I have an unusual sensation around my eyes,but can not explain it, wondering if that is part of the disease. I will take the advice and try doing the exercises. Thanks to all who have posted this information. Vicki
