Hi- I just read the message about Bells Palsy. I, too, have had Bells Palsy since Jan. 16, 2000. Treatments: deep facial massage, acupuncture with stimulation for 6 weeks and finally decompression surgery and 6 months of physical therapy. I am still left with synkinesis, droopy eye, contorted face when I smile, difficulty eating and I guess my recovery is acceptance and get on with it - I do understand the psychological affects as well as the health effects, but don't give up.
