2 weeks ago I went to the ER for facial paralysis. Doc looked me over and said Bell’s Palsy... he gave me antibiotics and steroids which are horrible combination.
A couple weeks prior to my face going dead I was tingling a lot in my hands and feet ... then 2 days before I was diagnosed I started having trouble with my eye. Thought I had a stye.
Now 2 weeks in ... I have quite a bit of neck stiffness and some pain in the affected side.
I noticed today I have what looks like blisters on my nose ?? Is this from my nose running and wiping it??
My eye still gives me quite a bit of trouble. I tape it most nights.
Also the tingling in my hands. Even numbness in feet have got worse it seems... is this in anyway related to BP?
I am 51 (52 next week) HBP and type 2 diabetic. I take a couple pills for each.
Is the blisters and tingling (pins needles) related to BP?
Oh I do take Gabapintin for diabetic nerve damage and yes it does seem to help some.
Recovery signs ??
I have a tiny bit of movement in my cheek and corner of my mouth... also itching in the neck ?
Thanks for any help
