Sunday morning started to feel a numbness in the lower lip. Didn't think much about it until the next morning when the numbness spread to the entire right side of my face. A little bit of panic set in so I called my doctors who told me to go to the hospital. Three days later and after many many tests I was informed that I had the garden variety of Bell's palsy. The usual treatment are steroids, but since I am a type 1, I was told that steroids raise blood sugars and it wasn't the route to take. I guess I am now on the slow road to recovery. Has anyone out there been through a bout of Bell's palsy?
