Hi I developed Bells Palsy about 5 weeks ago, following 5-6days of one sided earache and a sore throat. The pain did get worse and since treatment has subsided. I am now taking Amitriptiline for the continuing neuralgic pain. There has been a lot of improvement symptomwise, but the tiredness is awful, and as my eyes are not fully synchronised yet it is difficult to concentrate for any length of time. Please tell me that this will improve as I do want to resume work at some point!
