Bell Palsy?



Hello My Community, 

I hope you are taking care of yourselves. Staying at home as much as possible 

to prevent Coronavirus. It does not hurt to protect Others and yourself. I have 

only had to go outside to go to the Emergency Room in four months. I get my 

Mail, little sun and check my Raised garden. It is really growing and I expect to

eat Fresh Vegetables soon.


Now Community, if anyone has had Bell Paisley let me know your experience.

It  hit me in one side of my face and I never knew why neither could the Doctor

explain. I had two (2) CT scans, EKG, Blood work, Chest X-ray, and 7 hrs. in the Emergency Room. Have 3 meds. and taking Exercises. Will see Internist,

ENT and perhaps Neurologist soon.


Gotten lots of Information from Doc and Medical Websites.


Thanks Community and Take Care!

Hi Sunday 46. Hope all is well. Kudos on your garden. May you have a bountiful harvest. My mom had bell palsy 3 yrs ago. She got it after being out in the heat of the day and walked into the house while the ac was on. Took her about 6-9 weeks before her face muscles went back to normal. She too was prescribe some medication but she just used a lil bit of mineral ice cream and it helped her out. Hope you get well soon.
