Hi A!

Since I recovered from Bell's palsy I've had various pains, twitches,  and a fullness sensation in my ear  every now and then. Those issues have never gone on to lead to Bell's palsy again. With regard to the fullness sensation in my ear which lasted a few days, that followed a period of stress, so there does seem to be a link there in my case.

I don't think you need to worry too much. The vast majority of people do not have a recurrence of Bell's palsy.

All the best to you!

I found that Nexcare Sensitive Skin Low Trauma Tape worked really well for me, it does not rip off any eyelashes or skin Smiley

Yes, you over stressed and over worked yourself, which easily leads to worsening of symptoms. Rest, relax, don't do it again.

Hi all,
I was diagnosed with BP about 6-8 weeks ago, the onset and presentation was classic - strange taste to numb tongue, then facial weakness in my eye, then then entire right side of my face for about 4 weeks with slow improvement from 4-6 weeks (currently). My eye was the worst, and seems to be the slowest to recover completely. I would say I am about 85% to 90% better. My best guess was the BP was brought on by the shingles virus, as I was extremely tired and slightly feverish. I was treated with 60mg of prednisone for 7 days and a taper. 

My question is this: when am I considered completely healed and potentially having a relapse, vs. still dealing with the original presentation of BP?

I was away for work last week, working 10-12 hour days, on my feet, exhausted and not eating well. Two days after getting home I have started to experience a mild reminder of the bitter taste that came on when my BP first presented, as well as pain in the ear and my neck on the same side as my presentation. I am convinced that the exhaustion and the reoccurring symptoms are related. Should I seek medical attention? The more rest I get the better it seems to be (ie. not worsening, the bitter has gone away). I just don't know if this is normal or not. I have read that many people do get tingling, and pain for years afterwards without another complete presentation of the BP.

Anything you share would be very much appreciated as I find doctors are not very familiar with the subtleties of this condition.

Kindly,
A

Hi!

So sorry you haven't seen any recovery yet. There are people with Bell's palsy who start recovery after the three month mark, but I think it would be a good idea to have a re-evaluation of your condition now by a neurologist.

Wishing you the very best of luck!
