    I know it's hard but please try not to worry, it's really out of your control. Hopefully your nerve isn't too damaged and starts to regenerate itself quickly. As I said before I'm nearly 2 yrs in to my recovery and its been a b.loody hard slog. Try and rest up as much as possible and try some gentle massage after a warm shower to keep the muscles taut.

    Did you have your hearing/ears checked? Is the pain around your ear still there?
    DS's ear infection that set off his palsy needed antibiotics, but then he also needed grommets as fluid in his ear had also taken half his hearing ability. I'm no doctor, so I have no idea as to whether the fuzzy hearing is a side effect of the palsy or if it is part of what set it off.

    Yes - he had an ear infection which aggravated the nerve enough for it to stop working.
    Hope you get some clear answers or direction soon.
    For his palsy we were told to go to the paediatrician and waited for hours at the hospital only for them to google how to treat it online (clearly visible from his bed). Thankfully the steroids worked, but apparently they should have sent us straight to the ENT for the op then and there as his ongoing ear fluid problems could have easily set off another palsy which may not have as easily reversed. (It was 6 months later by the time we finished jumping through the hoops and convinced them that his hearing was not right in order to get a referral)

    If they've checked your ears properly then that is a good start - just wanted to make sure that they weren't just treating symptoms but get to the cause if there is one so that it doesn't happen again and your body can heal better.

    Do you think the steroids are working yet?

    Yes fuzzy hearing, muffled like. I haven't had it for a few months but when I'm stressed it tends to come back along with the pain.
