I am wondering if there is a connection between having high blood pressure and developing Bell's palsy. Does anyone else here have both conditions and maybe feel that they're related?
I developed Bell's Palsy last Saturday night into Sunday morning and couldn't see the doctor until Monday morning first thing. When I went to see the doctor my blood pressure was very high and that was a first for me. My blood pressure had been a little on the high side but this time it was very high and the doctor concentrated more on the blood pressure than the Bell's palsy. The doctor put me on a course of Prednisone and lorsartan and clonidine and now I'm taking all of that and still have high blood pressure.
The bell's palsy symptoms seem to be easing as I can have use of my eyelid now but my lip is still not right. But since finishing my course of steroids I have developed pain radiating from my eyebrow ear and down my jaw in connection with the Bell's palsy.
I am so confused as to why both problems flared up simultaneously and so I'm asking if anyone else here has experienced something similar. Thanks in advance.
I brought my pain doc the script that the surgeon wrote for Vicodin. I had told the surgeon's nurse that I don't need the pills as I already have pills and am on a pain contract. But they insisted I take the script any how. I took it with me to my last pain doc appointment on the 8th and the pain doc was so happy. He said he was glad I brought the meds to him. I naver received a formal pain...
Hi all! Happy Holiday and all that falderal! LolSo, had a roommate steal my pain medication. I only had 6-7 left as I was supposed to get a refill on Thursday.
