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 don't know what happened, but I became ill 12 hours after eating and threw up all of my food. It was still undigested after 12 hours. Some of it looked just like it did when I cooked it. I had pain, then threw up once, still...
