Ramsay Hunt worsening

ladinred26 posted:
I was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt about 4 weeks ago. I took the standard round of steroids and antiviral drugs. The numbness/tingling and my sense of taste seemed to be getting better. However, in the last few days the numbness of my mouth and my lack of taste seems to be worsening. My ENT appt is still three weeks away. I'm wondering if this is normal or if I need to push for an earlier appt.
