Bells Palsy (facial paralysis) - March 2015 and still today in my left side of my face.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I never got an specific reason/diagnostic to got facial paralysis. I had all the symptoms, but I never had this before. When I went to the urgent care, the doctor that took care of me only gave me one medication for my situation and later when I visited my doctor, she told me that he missed to order me another medication to get fast recovery. Also, that process has to be doing the first 48 hours after the paralysis. I couldn't spit, I couldn't close my left eye. I have to sleep with a tape and a pirate cover over my eye to close it and don't get any infection. I got tired when I ate and I lost wait. I took approximately 35 acupuncture and I got some improvement, however I got tired of the treatment and I stopped. My smile is not the same since paralysis happened. When I read my eye get tired and I have to help it raising my eyelid or stretching the lower part of my eye. Was a long and tired process. Still in my face and I took it as a God'd message to me to understand other people with disabilities and I transform my situation in a funny episode to accept it and live with it.
