I have been suffering with the flu since Friday (it's now Monday). On Saturday evening I noticed that my bottom lip to the left had stopped moving, kinda shrugged it off and thought it was just due to the bug (naive of me I know)
Sunday it was still there and I told my partner who tried checking me for a stroke! - instead I googled the symptoms and come across BP. As its the days between xmas and new year I didnt want to go to a&e as I didnt feel it warranted it, the NHS page said it was best to start treatment within the first 72 hours so I made a docs apt for Monday morning, which was within the timescale. I am now on steroids.
However, when I woke up on Monday morning I noticed that I couldnt lift up my eyebrows equally and my eye felt swollen however I can still close it.
Is it likely that my eye will get to the point of not being able to close or is that only some cases? My doctor advised that I may get worse before I get better, but he didnt know much about it as i dont think its very well known? (He was a very good doc tho!)
I also get married in less than 12 weeks and I'm devastated that this is still likely to be affecting me on my wedding day. I only seem to be able to find stories of people suffering with it for several months/years. Is it possible for a speedy recovery? Are there any tips or advice that anyone could give me!
