I woke up on Christmas Eve morning and found I couldn’t drink my glass of orange juice properly without dribbling. Within an hour my eye felt strange and I couldn’t close it properly. I suspected Bell’s Palsy as my dad had it many years ago.
We dialled 111 but couldn’t get through so decided to go to A&E. Here I was admitted to the stroke ward, had a CT scan, blood tests and a visit from an OT. I was a bit worried that they were going to keep me in but thankfully they decided it wasn’t a stroke but Bell’s Palsy.
I have been given a week’s worth of Prednisolone which is best prescribed as soon as symptoms are experienced.
I have a concern that it isn’t true Bell’s Palsy but actually that the MS has damaged the nerves to my face.
Any thought ?
