Re: Vestibular Neurtis to Bells Palsy?

Yes, most definitely. If the vn is inflammed it can compress (I believe it is the 7th nerve that controls your facial movements) the 7th nerve which can cause Bells Palsy. I know this first hand because a friend of my neighbor got an ear infection one month before mine in January and it caused Bells Palsy. The good news is that Bells Palsy will heal with time. If you research information on the internet on Bells Palsy it will explain all this.

Take care,

Im not sure. But I was wondering if having bells palsy in the past could lead to Vestibular Neuronitis?? I have had bells palsy in the past where one side of my face wouldn't work and was numb. It resolved itself. But I still wonder if it lead to vestibular neuronitis. I will read up on this and see if I can find something. Will get back to you.
