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 have been working for over six months now as a janitor. I have been doing the same repetitive job over and over again with very little improvement to my chronic pain or leg function in my bad leg. I can stand for four hours now without my ankle swelling like it used to do, both with and without medical grade compression socks on, but my pain levels and functionality are basically the same....
