View More Posts Ignore
Hi everyone,My name is Patricia, I'm 16 years old and this is my second time getting Bells Palsy.I got it last year too. I don't know whether I should stay at home or go to school.I'm scared I'll be made fun of but I also don't want to go because my eye hurts so much especially when it's cold, it dries out quickly. How long should I stay home for?

" I'd go to school, use saline eye drops to keep the eye moist.

Best wishes in healing. "

" I wish I knew. I got it once, four years ago. So scared it will come back, I feel your pain. It was really embarassing, when my face got paralized, and my eye had to be taped shit. Thankfully mine went away in a month, but it was a rough month. Still having aphasia to this day, my words get mixed up.

Doctor said I might have had a mini stroke along with it, to explain the aphasia. Thank you. "

" Please excuse my typo, I meant to say when my eye had to be taped SHUT, not the other word. So sorry, I never curse, but do type pretty bad. Sorry for the mistake. Taped my eye Shut.

I wish you the best of luck. I hear it can go away faster second time around. Wishing you a quick recovery. "
