Bells Palsy

Unread post by Byron Bay Fan » Mon 09 Oct, 2017 12:39 am

Last week I had an encounter with this affliction that leaves me with a severely irritated eye if I use the computer much, so for better or worse you guys and gals will be receiving far less rantings from this old stirrer. Give my regards to RF if you pass his way.

Hopefully I will recover soon, could take up to one year. Myself an family are just relieved that it was not a stroke. Still working flat out on other projects doing physical stuff. But can't swim till my eye closes. Regards and thanks for the fun.

thanks. My wife still loves and kisses me even though I look terrible so I am not complaining nor am depressed.

Keep your chin up BBF.
A work mate had it as well. He looked a bit weird at times but made a full recovery. Will take a bit of time but sure you’ll be fine. Good luck mate.

I have suffered the same affliction about 20 odd years ago. The left side of my face was completely paralysed and I couldn't blink my eyelid. Trying to drink and eat was a nightmare. Doctor put me on a course of steroids and it eventually sorted itself out after a couple of months. It seems it can be caused by the same virus as chicken pox. The virus gets into the nerve ends and inflames them, or so that was the belief in those days. Good luck with it and get plenty of rest.

Well Mate, what can I say, going to miss your words of wisdom, only for awhile though.

My Mother and my nephew both suffered from BP and Mum came good after a short period, my nephew is still battling on, but living life to the full. I am sure you will have a complete recovery, good luck and we'll hear from you soon I am sure.

Good luck BBF. A friend of mine had this condition. He contracted it when he was 65. He took a while to recover but he's all good now. Can you get the forum on audio instead of having to read it? In Ivan's voice so it sounds more official. Stay strong, stay true.
Need more props.

Similar affliction to your ongoing problem with Robbie, one eye is the issue :-)

Get well.

Good luck with this BBF...the good news is you will make a complete recovery!.

I had Bells Palsy about 8 years ago, it just came on without notice, weeping eye, and small paralysis around the mouth and eye....It gradually went away after 2 or 3 weeks...I wasn't given any medication to treat it but Predinsone is often prescribed...Good luck and don't worry....
