Re: tingling and strange sensations in my face so worried

hi -- don't want to be one of the viewers who didn't reply. I had Bells Palsy very young which is very unusual (age three), but had very classic symptoms: extreme one-sided weakness to the point food would dribble from my mouth. I have no memory of the condition, but do remember my mom telling me I was allergic to the sun. I think she didn't want me to go outside for fear I would get teased.

From my understanding, Bells Palsy is typically caused by inflammation of the nerves where they enter the facial area. Typical treatment is a short course of steroids. Have you been treated at all? Maybe your doctor could prescribe the steroids while you are awaiting your appointment.
