Bell's Palsy and Lymes Disease-Bells wk 7
Got 3" red circle on Father's Day, Sunday, June 16, 2013.
The circle got darker each day, and I was feeling nauseous and tried.
On Wed, June 19 the bulls-eye appeared, went to Health Stop clinic.
Diagnose me with Lyme Disease.
Put me on antibiotic, Doxycycline, for 21 days, 4 days later,
Saturday night, June 22, I can call my cat, my left side of my face is paralyzed, diagnosed with Bell's Palsy. My eye was blood shot and hurt. The eye drops and gel has helped a lot. I had to tape my eye shut at night.
When I finished the 21 days of Doxy, for the Lyme, I no longer have Flu-like symptoms, of fever, chills, nausea, neck pain, or feeling fatigue.
It's been 7 weeks that I have had Bellís Palsy and it is getting better, I can now call my cat (kissy, kissy), I donít have to hold my cheek to pronounce ďbísĒ and ďpísĒ any longer. I no longer have to tape my eye shut at night, but I still cannot smile. People are telling I look better. I got Bellís on June 22, I was hoping that it would only last for 2 weeks, now I'm hoping that I will have my face and smile back in 2 months (August 22nd. I have not been taking anything for Bell's, my doctor offered a steroid (Prednisone), but I did not want to take a steroid.
Anyone else get Bell's as a result of Lyme?
How long did the Bell's take to go away?
Did any of the treatments you used for the Bell's work?
I'm thinking of trying Acupuncture (doctor not supportive), I've had 2 Reiki and Craniosacral Therapy sessions (I think they helped, but not sure). Any use any alternative treatments for
