My mothers boyfriend has it...generaly it's suposed to go away within 6wks. it's not only caused by injury to the nerve but also any swelling or compression around it. I'm not sure why pregnant women are prone, but the good news is in the majority of cases it does go away. I'm not sure how they would treat it with you, but i know my mom's bf was given steriods, and you will need eye drops for your eye, i think that is the major complication that goes along with it, since you can't blink your eye can become dry so you need to be careful with it. I hope you've been to the doctor, he/she can answer any specific questions you have and will know the best treatment for it.
