Not directly but know of a couple of people who have suffered with it, one was a friend of the Mrs who had one bout of it whilst pregnant, the other was a lad I worked with who had one major paralysis when he was young but you could notice it with drink one side of his face would droop.

I suffered a bout when I was about 18. My face looked as though I had a stroke. Took about 6 months to return completely back to normal. Still drools slightly if I am excessively tired. No real drugs except steroids. No pain involved but it did prove awkward to drink. Of course being a true Teesider it didn't stop me slurping a few pints on an evening or working a shift.

I got it a couple of weeks ago whilst on holiday.

Sh!t myself at first but reading up on it most people recover whithin a few moths.

Already much better so fingers crossed will be 100% in another few weeks but some people are affected forever!

A former neighbour of mine had a bout of it in the very early stages of pregnancy. It came on without warning and, like ourself, she was initially very worried. It disappeared after about 3-4 months (with no medication) and she hasn't had a reoccurrence 8 years later.

Best of luck!

BELLS PALSY

 
I had it this Spring. Pretty scary when my breakfast started dribbling from the side of my mouth. I looked in the mirror and, like most people who get it, thought I was having a stroke. But I felt fine in myself and my limbs were ok... so I waited 20 minutes and there was no change. Then I went to work and consulted Dr Google. I guessed that I was having a Bells Palsy so continued to work all week, out on location.
My colleagues were all very worried, but I convinced them....and myself...that I was OK. The main trouble was difficulty speaking ... and it was a bit embarrassing when I was interviewed by the New York Times about Countryfile....slurring away. I think they thought I had suffered a stroke.
At the end of the week I was filming up on Devil's Dyke on the South Downs. I was getting pretty tired and cold. Helen Skelton turned up to do the "goodbye" with Matt and she freaked. I clooked in the mirror in the pub up on Devil's Dyke and saw why ... it looked horrendous. Much worse than before. Anyway, she phoned the office and they got me a train ticket home ... she then took care of me as far as Kings X, missing her flight home in the process. Such a brill lass.
By the time I was at Kings X. warming up and taking anti-inflammatories had improved it, so it didn't look as bad.
I went to my local hospital the following day where they confirmed that it was Bells Palsy. I asked if they were going to give me any fancy drugs and they said no, they don't work. The prescribed cure was "go away and hope it gets better".
I had read of it taking months to get fully better, so I was pleasantly surprised to find sensation and control returning during the following week. I was walking around pulling daft faces all the time, trying to see if my muscles were working again. Must have looked mental.
The worst thing is being able to close your eye properly, and I did used some special eye lubricant. Other than that it was just hard on the vanity and a bit inconvenient.
I hope yours improves just as quickly. Good luck.

Ye, don't think mine is quite as serious as yours so hopefully will make a full recovery.

A mate of mine had it a few years ago in Spain.
It caused one side of his face to droop. I tnink it improved but he didn't cure it completely.
