With your previous research, you probably know that Bell's palsy has a very good prognosis. Most people with Bell's palsy fully recover, usually within 3-6 months, with or without treatment. Bell's palsy does not affect everyone the same. Some cases are mild and may improve within 2 weeks.
In the meantime, soon after my last correpondence, I developed what was diagnosed as Bell's Palsy, and my prescription was changed to Doxycycline, as Bell's Palsy is a prominent symptom of Lyme Disease, and two days later Prednisone was added to combat the inflammation (both oral). I made an emergency room visit yesterday, and my medication was confirmed, but Valacyclovir Hydrochloride was added to the regimen, just in case the infection is viral.
Much less often, herpes simplex virus type 1 is associated with neurologic disease, especially Bell's palsy (paralysis of one side of the face) and tic doloreux, characterized by horribly severe shooting pains in the face. So it makes sense that HSV-2 might also be associated with neuropathic pain involving the sacral nerves, i.e. in the back, down the legs, etc. However, this has never been well studied and the truth isn't know with certainty.
I had blisters around my neck, chest and stomach, even in my ears and mouth. I ended up with temporary Bell's Palsy. I couldn't feel part of my face at all. It took me 2 months to get over it, I had no appetite and lost a bunch of weight (not complaining) The folks that don't have a rash, have lab tests been done for auto immune issues? I've never heard of shingles without some rashing or blisters. I had a mild bout about 5 yrs back, only a few blisters, so not full blown.
