Update to post:: "I’m Smiling on the Inside"

I’ll be smiling again on the outside before too long. I went for a “Blink Reflex Test” this afternoon. I was expecting needles but was pleasantly surprised that the ENG tech was using magnetic strips with adhesive instead. I don’t mind needles but not around my eyes. The test is done to compare impulses on the well side with those of the ill side. There is a scale that they use to determine prognosis. My prognosis is great, 100% recovery in 2 weeks to 2 months. I read a study on this procedure and in the study there was 100% accuracy!

    Wonderful! I know that great progress has been made with the treatment of Bell's Palsy. I remember growing up that a friend of my mother's had it and never really recovered. I believe that what we know now was just not available back then.
