- Raspberry ketones - side-effect of red face, face muscle twitching
Whenever I use Raspberry Ketones 500mg capsules (1 a day) I get reddening of the tops of my cheeks coupled with muscle tightening/twitching of the cheek muscles closest to the nose (the muscles that contract if someone blows in your eyes) and the muscles at the bridge of nose at times too. Both sets of symptoms last for a day, then to be repeated again the next day on taking the next capsule. Whenever I cease using the product the symptoms likewise end. They began occurring from the very first use of the product. They are sometimes accompanied by a very low-grade headache. I thus now no longer use the product, plus the product made no difference whatsoever to my weight gain/loss when using it daily over several weeks.

From this study (1 year ago):
The sinus pain occurs when I drink alcohol most of the time but does occurs without the use of alcohol beverages. I get some relief by using a very hot towel for about 30 minutes and the Flunisolide. My doctor has given me MRI's, CAT Scans, blood work, eye pressure test and stress tests. I am retired military and I have traveled all over the world. The sinus pain began in Texas in 2005 after a severe sinus infection that was not treated properly by my ex-doctor.
