Bell's Palsy


Recommended Posts

`

Doc just said I had it. Got a shot in my ass of Roids and have to take 6 a day, plus three antiviral pills a day to kick this. Doc said mine is more mild than others, should get better after 7-14 days. 

 

Frustrating as hell. Went to gargle my mouthwash in the morning and it all squirted out of the right side of my mouth. I was like, WTF?. 

 

Weird. When I talk it looks like Drew Barrymore or Mickey (the trainer from the movie Rocky). F! My right eyeball can close, but it doesn't blink, so it gets dry and/or watery from the drops.

The person I knew with it woke up and thought he'd had a stroke cause his face was all droopy on one side

 

Mine wasn't droopy, but it was like someone gave me a ton of Novocaine to the right side of my mouth and is taping eyeball open. Weird. You can't even tell I have this until I start talking or if I try to smile.

Make sure your MD had your blood checked cor Lyme Disease. A good portion of my clients have BP as one of their Lyme symptoms. You do not want Lyme to go untreated or else you are in for a long road to recovery.

Sorry to sound so negative, but we see this all the time as the reason people discover they have Lyme.

Yeah, they gave me a blood test this morning. If I have Lyme it will show up.

So you don't have Bell's Palsy, you have Bill's Palsy.

I had it about 7-10 years ago. I was told the quicker they catch it, the quicker the healing. But each case/person is unique. It took about a month to fully go away.

 

In hindsight, the biggest problem (besides the stress of the unknown) was dealing with the mental effects of the steroids. I locked my keys in my car twice the first week I was on them.
