Hi, Dr. Ashori here to help you. Give me a moment to read your
question and I will reply to you shortly.
There isn't any surgery to be done that could change this. It would be important to check your blood hormones and other lab work to make sure that something else isn't in the abnormal range.
Thyroid and vitamin levels can be abnormal and cause similar symptoms. It's hard to say if the nerve pressure you applied could have caused something with your blood work but it's worth investigating.
A neurologist or psychiatrist may also be able to do a functional MRI of the brain to see if any parts are firing less or more than they should.
Have you tried any medication to help the symptoms you are describing? Particularly not being able to smile?
It would depend on various factors. Your doctor may try an SSRI or SNRI. I would recommend having a therapist decide what's best for you. Without having spent some time talking to you it's hard for me to recommend a medication.
