hi all i was diagnosed with bell palsy 9 days ago and just coming to end of 10 days 60mg prednisolone.
my face has had no improvement, i dont think its got worst but possibly feel like my mouth especially is kind of gtetting more used to going the wrong way.... perhaps muscles are tightening from no use.
I hear mixed messages about how much and when you can start excercising face.
im concerned mostly about mouth where there is is the worst paralysis. barely any movement bottom left. eating an apple is impossible unless sliced up!
i have had no pain really throughout. i wish i did have pain as maybe it would feel like it is alive and repairing!
so how much can i do? one thing i read was to massage and pull over the 'good side"
I'm considering acupuncture next week too! always been a sceptic of this but desparate to see something!!!
