Ive had no pain in them except before the onset of the bp but want to make sure.
Not sure if steroids are working. It hasnt got worse. Ive noticed theres been no twitching around my mouth at all and my eye only twitched about 2 times the whole of yesterday so im guessing that may be a good sign?
Still not blinking great and my smile looks a little weird. Ive had no drooping and still have muscle movement so not total paralysis which is good.
Have been sleeping quite well too and the meds dont seem to be giving me anymore side effects

Thought id report day 12 and definite improvements.
Right eye blinking much better and seems back in unison with the left. Vision has improved heaps!
Mouth seems to be almost back to normal.
Generally feeling better as was feeling really run down and tired.
Headache around eye and temple on rhs still persisting - mainly when i get tired which apparently is part of the nerves healing.
Feeling much more positive
Just hope it doesnt make a return this pregnancy as im only 24 weeks!

That's great news and sounds like the steroids may have done the trick

I had Bell's palsy when I was 13years old. It started with horrible taste in my mouth, then within a couple of days my eyesight got blurry. The next day I then woke up with a droopy face. It was very scary! I was on steroids, used eye drops, and did some facial exercises (attempting to raise eyebrows, etc). I was fully recovered within 2 weeks.
The following year I got it again but it was a more mild dose and cleared quickly again.
As I was young I was told my recovery would be better and quicker than adults. I've had no problems since.
