can you get bell's palsy again?
I am starting to feel the same pain in my neck and behind my ear.I still have problems from the first time 9 months ago so I don't know if it could be a part of that.but I am scared it is happening again

Krystin =]
i am not sure my mom had it and she started getting pains like that agian and the doctor said she was okay but you might need to go to a doctor and see

Bell's Palsy is a paralysis of the facial nerve sometimes caused by a viral infection, it's quite possible it's back.


Calidoc is right, however I have seen patients take at least a year to fully recover(regain all facial functioning). It can come back again or maybe you never completely recovered.

Good Luck:)

My uncle had it twice.

you can. viruses can re-infect your nerves (in this case, the facial nerve), just like shingles (herpes zoster chickenpox virus). see a regular doc or neurologist right away.

yes, I have also twice. It needs proper treatment, exercise

Bell's Palsy affects the facial nerve (as others have said) but this is a MOTOR nerve and has NO sensory fibers in it. The only sign this nerve is inflamed is paralysis. The palsy of this nerve often is accompanied by neuritis (inflammation) of other nerves, such as the trigeminal nerve (the sensory nerve of the face) or others. If you had pain the first time you had the palsy, it is possible that the return of that pain is a recurrent neuritis (such as "shingles" also known as herpes zoster). This can also affect motor nerves again.

The best thing to do is see a doctor right away. You can start antiviral medications and steroids to halt the process. Usually acyclovir or valcyclovir along with a short course of prednisone are all that is necessary.

I am a little concerned that you "still have problems" from your first episode. Do you still have the same palsy? Did it ever get better? Does your face move at all? There are other causes of pain and facial paralysis besides Bell's.
