Write-up: Right sided jaw pain started 12/22/20 in the am progressed through the evening. When I woke up I had numbness and weakness in the right of my tongue which I quickly realized included the right portion of my face. Included tongue was numb and I couldn''t move it. An Er trip and CT scan confirmed it was Bells Palsy. Today, My symptoms continue. Top of my head all the way to the way to bottom of neck is experiencing paralysis. Can move tongue now and it''s partly numb but it''s cooperating a bit more now. Nerve pain has worsened all over all the right side of face. Feels like someone has kicked face and I have a deep bruise. It''s a deep ache. Nothing will take away the ache away. My eye doesn''t lubricate like it should. So I have to either manually close it and wet it manually or tape it closed.

CDC Split Type:

Write-up: I had right sided headache for the first two days, then resolved. The right sided headaches recurred along with right tongue numbness initially on 12/29/2020. The symptoms worsen on 12/31/2020 and severe on 1/1/2021. I was initially started on Valtrex thinking it maybe due to shingles but soon with the right sided facial paralysis, it was obvious it was Bell''s Palsy and was started on steriods on 1/1/21 and also received acupuncture treatment on 1/2/21 which significant help improve the symptoms. I still have some residual weakness of the right eye with some tearing and mouth weakness.
