Yes with much effort.

Care and rehabilitation
Stroke rehabilitation is the process by which patients with disabling strokes undergo treatment to help them return to normal life as much as possible by regaining and relearning the skills of everyday living. It also aims to help the survivor understand and adapt to difficulties, prevent secondary complications and educate family members to play a supporting role.

Good nursing care is fundamental in maintaining skin care, feeding, hydration, positioning, and monitoring vital signs such as temperature, pulse, and blood pressure. Stroke rehabilitation begins almost immediately.

Stroke rehabilitation should be started as immediately as possible and can last anywhere from a few days to several months. Most return of function is seen in the first few days and weeks, and then improvement falls off with the "window" considered officially by State rehabilitation units to be closed after six months, with little chance of further improvement. However, patients have been known to continue to improve for years, regaining and strengthening abilities like writing, walking, running, and talking and daily rehabilitation exercises should continue to be part of the stoke patient´s routine. Complete recovery is unusual but not impossible and most patients will improve to some extent : a correct diet and exercise are known to help the brain in its process of self-recovery.

All the best!

From your question, it sounds like you or someone else was diagnosed with Bells palsy, and you are wondering if this is related to a stroke. Bells palsy mimics the effects of a stroke, but it is not caused by a stroke, and having Bell's palsy doesn't indicate that a person is at risk of a stroke. Strokes are caused by blood clots that block circulation in part of the brain. Bell's palsy is inflammation of the trigeminal nerve, that is usually caused by virus or trauma to the cheek or jaw.

From your description it is the 7th cranial nerve(facial nerve) palsy also known as Bell's palsy. This is neither a stroke nor even a mild one.

The pathogenesis (the way the disease is caused) is different in each case and, it does not mean that Bell's palsy may lead to a stroke or predisposes one to a stroke.

They are two completely different entities.

Hope this answers your question.
