Bell S Pulsy

Has anyone suffered from Bell's Pulsy after their pregnancy? How long did it last? Once the symptoms subsided, were you back to "normal?" This temporary paralysis due to nerves can be scary. I am curious to learn about other people's experiences. You know prenant women are a lot more susceptible to getting it than non pregnant women. My neurologist said 7 out of 10 post partum women get it - FREAKY! I guess it all comes with the territory of being a Mommy :o)

I was never pregnant, but i suffered from a mild case of it. I didn't need any medication because it wasn't severe. My doc told me it would be uncomfortable and that it should clear up in 1-2 weeks, which it did. When the sensation came back to my face it was burning, a very uncomfortable feeling..it was odd. I haven't gotten it again since my first time this year. Never knew what brought in on either
