So I'm aware for many Bell's Palsy is something that can come as a shock and you suddenly have to adapt quickly to many things such as eating, drinking as well as how your hearing and eyesight can be affected.
But I'd love to know which things you weren't told by a doctor that you wish you knew.
These could be practical things such as:
-wear sunglasses outside when windy/cold to block out the wind but also the bright light.
Or they could be about what is actually happening such as:
-The nerve that is affected is near your ear so you are likely to get pain in your ear.
Anything that you think people who are diagnosed with Bell's Palsy would love to know or things that would help in the first few days when you are trying to adjust and often are feeling alone.
I'm hoping to feed this back to help update the Facial Palsy website with some practical things but also to encourage people that they aren't alone. I've felt so supported since finding this site and others on social media, but I didn't find any until I was about 7-9 days in.
