Bell's palsy bilateral
July had left sided Bell's palsy. Treated by ent and resolved in 3 weeks. September had right sided Bell's palsy but did not go to ent. Have since gone and said it mostly resolved. Still have smile and lip droop on right side. Did have MRI with contrast after July left side and no issues found. Not sure if slow progression. No bloodwork issues or other health issues. Thoughts??

Hi.... Without treatment, full recovery is still likely and occurs in about 15 in 20 cases. With treatment, the chance of full recovery is improved ... In most people the function of the nerve gradually returns to normal. Symptoms usually start to improve after about 2-3 weeks and have usually gone within two months. Sometimes it can take up to twelve months to recover fully... In some cases, symptoms do not completely go. Some weakness may remain for good..
