I Had a ear ache for about 3 days so i decided to go to the ER. Through the whole waiting period i developed Paralasis on the the whole left side of my face. The Hospital Did a blood test thinking i had limes disease. The blood work came back Neg. But When a Blood test is done is everything checked like HErpes Etc??? So anyway i went to a nuerologist and he said i dont have herpes or LImes....Said it was caused by a virus that enflamed my nerve near my ear causing a ear ache followed by the bells pasly. SOmething is still freaking me out though thinkin i have herpe. I havent had any breakouts in the genital area or anyhting. My aunt also had the same thing happen to her so im hoping its just that and nothing major
Can't say I've ever heard of any association between Bell's Palsy and Herpes. As for your other question, I highly doubt that when the hospital did the blood test that they checked for HSV. Heck it's not even checked for during a normal STD screening unless you specificially ask, let alone something like Bell's which it's not normally associated with.
