Re: second time with Bells Palsy
Yes, they checked my ears very thoroghly but didn't find the typical Ramsey Hunt lesions in my ear. Also, I didn't get the Ramsey Hunt rash. I was tested for Lyme disease because that can cause Bell's Palsey and I was given a CT scan because I was in so much pain in the beginning. I think as people get older the symptoms are worse and last longer. My sister, who is an Rn, says a lot of the elderly never get rid of it so age must be a factor in recovery.
