Bell's Palsy Ear Pain
I was diagnosed with bells palsy 18 months ago. I am 80% improved. i still have flutters and slight ear pain is that a good sign?
Overall good: The overall picture you're describing is one of progressive albeit slow improvement. The flutters and slight ear pain is not a good news or bad news; it is simply an expression that there is some slight residual symptomatology. The Important thing is that over time you are getting better and will most likely continue to improve until there is complete resolution of the Bell's ...Read more
...is a corruption of French "paralise" from Latinized Greek "paralysis." In the old days it meant any kind of persistent weakness. To this day Parkinson's disease is also called "paralysis agitans" which is a Latin translation of Dr. Parkinson's original name for it, the "shaking palsy." We've obviously reborrowed the full form "paralysis" into English as well; today ...Read more
How do I keep incipient bell's palsy from getting worse? I've had BP 2 times before. I have same ear pain and headache that preceded last two episodes
Neck,left side back head,ear pain. Had slight asymmetrical smile and slight feeling of muscle weakness in eye.
Tearing eye lip closed slightly crooked. Normal neuro physical exam and normal eye exam. Possible Bell's palsy?
Possibly/depends,,,: It's possible that this is Bell's palsy but it depends on how severe your symptoms are and/or if anything else might have contributed to this. It could be caused by an infection flare-up or this could be a viral infection like herpes. Apparently, this can have episodes that come and go and may not even need treatment. It'd be best to see a neurologist to be sure. Best of luck. ...Read more
If by absent reflex: ....you are referring to the acoustic or stapedius reflex which activates the tensor tympani muscle which tightens the eardrum so that loud noises are attenuated (muffled a bit) then, the answer is YES. In Bell's Palsy this reflex may be compromised. Sounds may seem significantly louder and even distressing on the side of the facial palsy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had bells palsy for 10 months. My head is buzzing &the left side ear/head has been painful from start. Going to nuerologist next week. Help welcome?
Perhaps a variant: Your description leads me to wonder if, in your case, the bell's palsy was due to "herpes zoster oticus" or ramsey-hunt syndrome. You may have possessed a tell-tail eruption if your doctor looked into your ear. Discuss with your neurologist, and decide upon an approach. ...Read more

Is memory lost associated with bells palsy? I had bells palsy almost a year ago and i still have migraines focusing in the back of the ear. Help!
No, no memory loss: Memory is a complicated function that can be affected by pain, but a bell's palsy does not directly impact memory. Also, do not presume that your headaches are migraines. This suggested that the headaches occur as a result of changes in blood flow. More likely, the headaches are related to the bell's palsy and thus require a much different treatment. Treatment of the pain may improve memory also. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In my second month of Bell's Palsy I started to hear noise in my ear. This sound is not constant as it goes away for some time like an hour or so. ?
Year ago I had bells palsy on right side & recovered 90%,since that time I’ve acute head pain behind the right ear, especially when stressed,what 2 d?
Why 90%: You are experiencing tension and stress which has nothing to do with your Bell's palsy . Try to relax,ask your doctor for some medication like Ativan (lorazepam) 0.5 mg to be taking around your bed time, because it could make you sleepy, apply heat around the area behind your ear and your neck. You are young lady ,and you live in the best place on earth.relax.pray,and take the medicine bilshifaa inshallah ...Read more
