3 days ago I had this headache only on one side of my head and towards the back left side. I began feeling it in my ear canal so I thought I was getting an ear infection. Next day it was a mild inner ear pain coming and going then the day after I lost 70% of facial movement on left side. I went to my doctor and was told I had bell's palsy but im worried about my symtoms and such. I have some movement in my left side of my face but what is worrying me is im gettng headaches caused by this slightly swollen area behind my ear at the left hand bottom of my skull and even is swollen in the neck area. Is this normal with bell's palsy and how long before it goes away?
