Write-up: After final dose of both Hepititis A Vaccine, and HPV Vaccine my daughter awoke the following morning; (less than 24hrs) with complete paralysis of the left side of her face. Unable to smile on left side, close left eye completely, unable to stick out tongue or move it side to side. Complained of numbness and pain on left side of face. Prior to this, after last doses; my daughter complained that she was having problems with her tongue and taste buds, had one incident of severe pain in her ear which lasted one day, complained of stomach pain unrelated to anything, general aches and pains, and headaches. I called the doctor''s office after assessing the situation and brought her in to be evaluated. The doctor felt it was unrelated to the vaccines and diagnosed her with Bell''s Palsy. She provided patient with a neuroligical examination and a prescription of Prednisone and Acyclovir.
