Two days ago the left side of my face went a little numb. I can't close my left eye all the way and the left side of my mouth is weak. I've seen people with much more noticeable cases than mine, but I'm still worried that I look wierd. Dr. says that being pregnant is a risk factor for Bells, and that it won't get any worse than it is in the first 48 hours. She told me to bump my fish oil and take some B12 losenges, but didn't prescribe any drugs. She wasn't too concerned, says its very common.<br><br>
Has anybody else experienced Bells Palsey in pregnancy, or not? How long did it last? Did anything help to relieve it?
