i was diagnosed a week ago with Bells palsy and I am struggling with the pain , mainly at night. I have been back to the doctors today for stronger pain killers and have fingers and toes crossed they will work tonight. I think the most worrying thing about this awful condition is the not knowing... how long it will last and will I ever recover. my life just sees to have turned on its head , struggling to eat, drink, read, sleep plus the low self esteem of seeing my face droop. Any help or reassurance from anyone going through this or recovering I feel may help me or just to chat to someone going through it. My friends and family have been brilliant but they don't really understand what I am feeling and I feel I have to put on a brave face ... please feel free to chat x
