    Just curios? Has any one here ever had a Bells Palsey? I have read somewhere it was probably related to autoimmune also? thoughts???

    My husband had atypical Bells Palsy... it wasn't recognized for a long time as the muscles around his eye/eyebrow/cheek were twitching and pulling up... used botox but also started a high dose vitamin regimen and eventually didn't need botox hardly ever...

    at the time we felt it was due to herpes viruses, which it still could be partially due to, BUT

    My opinion is also that he has lyme as he has so many other similar symptoms to our son, as do I, but the only one we've paid the thousands of dollars to get tested for lyme is our son -

    and yes, our son is positive for active as well as chronic lyme.

    all the best,
