I have had Bells Palsey for six months. I was treated for

Customer Question

I have had Bells Palsey for six months. I was treated for Lymes in July. Shortly after taking the antibiotic my right side started to slacken. Never numb just slack. I have gone to therapy using vibration and sauna 3 times a week for 3 months. I have gotten some movement back but eye still not closing. I have also had acupuncture but did not respond to it. I am in excellent health. I am 58 and don't want to wait too long between doing other things that may help. This past month my right side is starting to pull up. I have been doing stretching to see if this would help this upward freeze. The asymmetry bothers me more than the eye no closing. So I am wondering if this crooked lip line will loosen up or should I see a specialist soon?
