Bell's Palsy

Posted , 1 user is following.

Went to the GP Practice about 5 weeks ago with what i thought was ear pain. The nurse practitioner said that there was a lot of wax in the ear and a small skin tear in the canal. He recommended oil in the ear for a couple of weeks. After doing this there was no improvement, and i suddenly developed slight facial paralysis, eye and above the upper lip. Went back to see a GP who referred me to A&E, eventually diagnosed with Bell's Palsy. Having done some research I do recognise some of the symptoms but I also have a fair bit of pain, dizziness, brain fog and exhaustion like I've never known.

Just wondered if anyone else had/has similar symptoms?
