I've had bells palsy months now, I'm able to close my eyes

Customer Question

I've had bells palsy for 20 months now, I'm able to close my eyes now but still unable to lift my eyebrow, and my mouth still had a Drupal, and I get burning in my right eye. What are my chances of getting g better, I did acupuncture therapy, what else can I do?

Hi there ...

Thank you for the question ...

As you have Bells palsy since last 20 months and according to large review it has been shown that almost 70 percent of patients recovers fully within 3-4 weeks .

Few of remaining recovers within 3- 6 months .

But beyond 6 months most of the patients may have permanent palsy and hope of recovery is there with Physiotherapy , massage , exercises

So although you have small chances of recovery but continue things that I mentioned .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Please leave positive feedback for me .

Thanks .
