I am coming up on 10 months with Bells Palsy. I am still waiting for my tears, saliva, , taste buds and full blink to return. It is on the side that my good eye is on. I have low vision in the other eye. I have to patch my eye much of the time since it is so, so dry - which means I see very little while its patched. I started being able to close the eye 2 months ago. But blink is not fully restored and I need tear to return. Constant dry, dry mouth. Everything taste bad. I've lost 28 pounds. Difficult to eat when things taste bad. When I try to move my face, I have noise in my ear and ear is sensitive to loud sounds. I am at the end of my rope with this illness. I have little quality to the life I am having to live. Has anyone else had an experience like mine and how did it turn out?
