I am new here

Diagnosed with BP Sept 2016. Was given usual antiviral & steroids. Gradually got a lot better by Dec . Within this time I had 4 sessions of acupuncture. Thought I was on road to full recovery but by late Jan 2017 my eye started feeling really weak with a lot of "twitching feeling" across face which is still continuing. Also sinus blockage and flu like symptoms - joint pains, dizzyness and feeling generally unwell. Worried my immune system damaged? Anyone else had anything like this. Making me very depressed.

Had all that and more. Have you by chance had an MRI lately?


Only ever had 1 scan and that was 18months before BP. Scan was for an oral cyst which I had removed soon after scan. I have read that some people blame dental work for BP but seems a long time before it happened.
