Hi everyone! I'd Bells Palsy around 5 years ago. Simply woke up one morning and my face felt numb down one side. Was given anti-virals and steroids to treat it, although I found the steroids had a worse effect on me than the actual palsy. I still have partial numbness on my left hand side. Never quite regained the full smile, although that means I've now got an actual 'good side' for photos! You will get through the worst of it!
