Can You Get Lazy Eye From Bells Palsy
...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
I got bells palsy in december (had a mri)and have healed physically. I still get the terrible pains in the back of the head sometimes. Is this normal?
Diagnosed with Bells palsy on right side of face 3 yrs ago and in the last 3 weeks my right eye has started to water is this due to the BP?
My left eye twitches fiercely of late. I have had bells palsy twice on that side, once about a year ago. Does this mean I am getting it again?
Get checked: Recurrent bell's palsy is not common so it is possible there is another reason for facial paralysis and now "blepharospasm". I am not sure if you had an MRI at any point to make sure there isn't something else going on inside your brain area but if not I would do so asap. I would see an ENT or a neurologist who can get to the bottom of what is going on. ...Read more

Diagnosed with Bells Palsy 6/18/17right side. Noticed twitching over left eye 6/30/17 does it mean I'm getting bilateral palsy. Are twitches normal?
It is highly unlikely that you would develop bilateral Bell's palsy. I assume that you are using refresh pm or some other petroleum based ointment in the right eye several times daily and before bed to protect your cornea. If you do develop it in your left eye, use the ointment there, too and call your doctor.

4 yrs ago I was diagnosed with bells palsy on the right side of my face. Now the left side of my forehead above my left eye is twitching. Why?
Cause may be unknown: Twitching inside a facial muscle, which happens in normal people, is called myokymia (an involuntary, spontaneous, quivering of a few muscle cell bundles in a muscle). Myokymia starts and stops spontaneously. It can last a few minutes to a few days. One should see her primary care doctor, or an eye/ear/neurology doctor, if symptoms persist, keep recurring, or are combined with any other symptoms. ...Read more
8months ago I had bells palsy in right side & numbed left side, after recovery got pain behind left eye. Now still have the eye pain & got blood spot i?
Bilateral issues suggest that this is NOT just simple Bell's palsy, and instead may represent a different process. Eye pain with a blind spot raises questions of an optic nerve inflammation. Suggest visit to neurologist, as several different explanations may need to be considered. I would test for sarcoid, MS, vasculitis like lupus, etc. We might be able to help further via

I got bells palsy 5month ago and now im 95 recovered, I have eye twitching and lip twitching now, in same side of my bells, is this dangerous??
What you are experiencing could be an phenomenon related to nerve regeneration. You may watch and wait. If the symptoms do not improve in three weeks or so, it would be prudent to see your doctor.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Got Bells palsy a few months ago. My smile is back and able to close eye but I can't produce tears in eye and lack of saliva in mouth. Is it permanent?
Only time will tell: Pretty unsatisfactory answer I know but it's the truth. Some people say after a 2-3 mths, WYSIWYG... (you're young; you know what that means don't you?). I have seen people improve after Bell's over the course of 1-2 years or longer. So, I stopped predicting these things a while back. The young whipper snapper docs think they know but you may prove them wrong. Hang in there & be patient! ...Read more

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.

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
Time for a visit: You need to visit an ophthalmologist and have a basic assessment done. You will need to clarify the issue. Some consider poorly a poorly aligned eye, "lazy" while it is better used for visual loss from one eye. Eye surgery may help re-align the eyes, but long term vision loss is usually permanent. Only a proper evaluation could be sure. ...Read more
Surgery may be it:
An eye that's mis-aligned, in an adult, can be cosmetically distracting. Even if vision can't be improved, surgery to straighten the eye often does help.
The underlying cause must be determined, & that list is extensive.
In a child (younger than 8 or 9 yrs or so) a pediatric ophthalmologist should be consulted to try to recover vision. ...Read more
Paliatively: Most people recover completely, without treatment in 1 to 2 months. Especially true if you can still partly move your facial muscles. Some people may have permanent muscle weakness or other problems on the affected side of the face but it is rare. Treatment with corticosteroids is common which helps lower long term side effects. Also if it is caused by a virus, Acyclovir is helpful. ...Read more
Rx May help: Lazy eye is the process where the brain ignores the "camera" picture from one eye because it is less clear or causes double vision. It can sometimes be improved if the weaker eye is strengthened (glasses), the stronger eye is patched or if the eye is lined up better with surgery. If the process has gone on too long, the brain ignores the fix & surgery is simply cosmetic. ...Read more
Not at your age: A Lazy eye" amblyopia is usually caused by a refractive error that is not discovered before age 2. The brain will "turn off" the image coming from the blurry (usually far-sighted) eye and concentrate and show preference to the good eye. The amblyopic eye then does not develop the visual pathways to the brain required for good vision. Patching the good eye can improve vision in a child. ...Read more
No: Not possible.Get a more detailed answer ›
Possibly: See your eye doctor to discuss this option. The thickness of your glasses typically depends on the strength of the prescription and type of glass material used and does not have to do with a lazy eye. Sometimes, if you have prism in your glasses it can make them thicker. There are thinner, lighter high index lenses that may help you. ...Read more
Depends on age: And underlying cause of the "lazy eye" if by "lazy eye" you mean an eye that is not straight, some types can be compensated with glasses at a young age. If "lazy eye" means an eye that never developed normally and has poor vision (amblyopia), then -- no-- no spectacle will fix it. ...Read more
