I am 2 months into dealing withc Bell's Palsy and have had limited success. Was given steroids and anti virals for the first week. Have had 20 acupuncture treatments. My biggest problem is I still can't close my right eye. I would appreciate any suggestions that seem to work. Thanks, Don J
I've had bells palsy since 11/04/11. I took the steroids and antivirals right away. After six weeks with no improvement I started acupuncture. Ten sessions later I still have no improvement. I'm also taking vitamins B1, B6, and B12 and massaging with castor oil daily. It's been over two months now with no signs of improvement. I can manage the inconvenience of hearing sensitivity, drinking with a straw, and looking like two face from batman. However, I can't stand the eye pain. Severe dry eye is like cutting open an onion and just living with the burning pain all day long. Life sucks.
