I was recently diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome and have just found this website. It's great to find a community of people going through the same as me.
It is only 8 days since I was diagnosed so early days in my recovery. I was fortunate that I was diagnosed and steroids/antiviral drugs administered pretty quickly so hopefully this has increased my chances of a full recovery. I have paralysis on the right of my face which means that I cant close my right eye or move my eyebrow or lip etc.
I identify with so many of the stories and comments on the posts and know that we will all get through this, at our own pace and in our own way. I am by nature a positive person but there are times that I worry just how much recovery I will make but I believe that positivity is a crucial part of the recovery process.
Look forward to sharing stories, ideas and thoughts with your all.
