    Be sure to get a pressure test done on that eye, asap.

    Ugh this is really upsetting. I was in there for what felt like 30 seconds, but anyway she seemed 100% sure that I have Bell's Palsy, which I really really really don't want to have ]:< but now I'm on steroids for two weeks and she said that since it started this morning and I came in right away it'll probably go away completely. It's horrible but my biggest issue with it is that I don't want to look like a freak, and then on top of that the steroids I'm on make you constantly hungry, and most people gain weight on them, while I'm trying to lose weight. So I'm very grumpy ):

    This is not going to be a very fun birthday

    Awwww sorry alexis, but your health is not compromised, that is the most important thing. Enjoy your birthday & forget about it.

    Alexis, you shouldn't gain weight, fluid maybe, because you are on short term. What did she say about your eye itself? No pressure test?

    I know I know, but I'm still grumpy ): lol even the idea that 'some' people have lasting effects is making me really upset. I want my two weeks to be over so I can see if it's going to go away completely. I don't know that I could handle this being a long term thing.

    And no, no pressure test was done.

    There are a couple alternatives once you've been cleared by your MD.
    One is acupuncture, the other is craniosacral therapy. They are both worth a shot. I hope this is just a passing thing for you, but do look into these as possible treatments. Best regards.

    Thanks (:
    I read about acupuncture, there's a specialist in my area who deals primarily with what I've got so I might talk to my doctor about it. I haven't actually been to MY family doctor, but I really like the lady I did see, so I'm not sure who I'm going to stick with. She was super prompt, it was a bit crazy because I just went to the walk in, but she put me on medication right away for two weeks and was pretty certain that because I came in within 24 hrs and took my first dose within 24 hrs that I'll be fine. I'm just wondering if I should have asked about an antiviral too, after doing my own research, but I'm not sure.

    ANYWAY, the idea of acupuncture terrifies me, but I might try it anyway. Today the 'sensitive ears' kicked in and every time someone made a loud noise it was like tunnel vision via hearing. The GOOD news is that I can mostly blink now, I couldn't before, but my mouth feels even worse and I have absolutely no movement in my nose (one side, anyway).

    I had Bells Palsy when I was about your age, and I certainly don't look like a freak. I wasn't given steroids or anything else, for that matter, and I recovered completely. No lasting ill effects, though apparently once you've had it, you're more likely to get it again. Lasted a couple days and all was well. :) Hope that eases your mind some.

    Lol well you have nice migraines then :P

    I lose feeling, get numbness, aphasia, get auras and sensitivity to the earth spinning around the sun and people in India breathing. And that's a mild one! If I'm lucky I get balance issues and extreme nausea too.
    I can always tell I'm getting one if I get dizzy and don't recognize my limbs, or my mouth or fingers or toes will get numb. And for a few days after my speech is delayed, I'm dizzy and easily confused.
