My husband was just diagnosed with Bells Palsey.
Can anyone tell me what this is and what causes it.
I was scared to death, I thought my husband was having a stroke, he complained about his face and lips going numb, he couldn't close his left eye or blink with it, and when he smiled the left side of his mouth wouldn't curl up.
We took his blood pressure and it was fine.
We rushed him to the hospital and our doctor was on call thank goodness! He immediately diagnosed it as bells palsey, the doctor said it had something to do with the nerves between the 6th and 7th vertebrae in his back and my husband had surgery there about 3 years ago.
Any info about Bells Palsey would be great!
