Hi everyone, I'm new to these sorts of forums but thought I'd see if anyone has tips/advice on making a successful recovery? I've had Bells Palsy in the left side of my face for 6 months now, it started 3 weeks before I gave birth to my first child. Whilst it has improved since the onset further improvements seem to have now stopped. I initially took a course of prednisolone, have eye drops and tape my eye shut at night as it still won't close. It has hugely dented my self-confidence and I haven't had half as many pictures with my new baby as I'd have liked. I've been back to my doctors a few times but it feels as though they are completely unsympathetic and each time simply give me more print outs of information I'm already aware of online and tell me to research it. So I guess I'm really looking for advice or if anyone knows of any clinics etc specialising in this in the Kent area. Has anyone tried acupuncture and if so did it work? Any assistance is hugely appreciated.
