Bell's Palsy is a condition which affects the seventh craneal nerve in the brain that controls our facial nerves. Aside from the numbness on the left side of my face, it's really not that annoying. I can't blink automatically either... Im so scared. Ive never had this happen before. They say it might be stress-related but Im not 100% sure about that. Anyone have any experience with this? I was told that recuperation time is 2-3 months~!
