Wow - where did the sensitive hearing come from, my ears feel like they are going to explode, just put a pan in the oven and it felt like my head was going to blow off!! Assume this is another of the symptoms of this lovely illness? I seem to be having new symptoms every hour, however i have taken photos over the last couple of days, and my mouth hasn't changed, my eye just won't fully close now - I have no blink but had been able to close my eye to sleep, but now it's only about 70% closed - will keep putting the drops in.....

This illness just keeps getting better and better  Roll Eyes

I am starting a warts and all blog with photos, it's about the only think I can control at the moment, and for me is good therapy - I will post the link as soon as I get up and running, and hopefully other newbies will find it useful.

hearing sensitivity is normal, as you say another lovely side effect. You'll be sensitive to cold and wind probably and try putting a bit of cotton wool in the ear when you go out.
If you're a techie and switched on enough to do blogs and links and all that stuff, then you could check out YouTube and " fitgirl15 " 's blog. She is just over 4.5 months in and has recorded herself and recovery every week with comments, video and updates from week 1 to I think it's week 18 now- so very current.
Take care

The sensitivity to hearing is due to a muscle in our ear that muffles loud sounds and now is not working, so loud sounds are going to be amplified.  I too was very bothered by putting away the dishes when the plates clanked each other, I would cringe.  My husband's loud boisterous laugh would also make me cringe,LOL it will hopefully subside soon.  I think it lasted about 2-3 weeks for me.  Hang in there, and believe me there is never a dull moment with this illness.
I also have been following fitgirl's progress ans PJ suggested.  It is really interesting to see others recovery as compared to our own.

Hi
With BP sound is very amplified it used to drive me mad.  When l first got diagnoised with BP A & E wrote to my GP to advise him to refer me to ENT consultant 3 months from the onset.  I thought this was usual practice in the UK, when l went to ENT they gave me full hearing test which came back all was ok, but the consultant was brilliant and had a lot of knowledge about BP.  It may be worth asking your GP for a referrel to ENT just to check all is ok.

Deeb,

I think the blog is a brilliant idea.  With hindsight, I wish I'd done something like that but at the time I was too fed up to do much lol

Thanks again - I am just working on the blog and hope to have it live tomorrow.

Had a good,nights sleep, and am managing not to have to tape up my eye as it is still closing for sleep, but not blinking. Speech has become a little more slurred today especially b and p, but I have just,spoken to my mom by phone and she said it wasn't that bad.

Thought I noticed a slight difference in my smile in that the frozen side moved about a millimetre, but It could just be wishful thinking....

Baby steps....

Ah, the wonderful inability to say B and P! Kind of sucks when it's called Bells Palsy really haha.  I struggled saying F too, although I found if I held the corner of my mouth I managed better, especially if I had to use the phone.

It affected my hearing too. And the speech thing is just annoying! I did find that talking was quite tirring and I would literally have a tired face at the end of the day.

My hubby nick named me Popeye ( Such a funny boy!) always maintain a sense of humour;)

Hang on in there  Sx
