CC: English, Español (Spanish), हिंदी (Hindi). Don't hide from the world! :-) This video diary documents my ~97 day journey to healing from Bell's Palsy. I had a severe case including mild deafness, and still made a full recovery after approximately five weeks.
I credit my recovery to: quick diagnosis; starting oral steroids within 2 days of first symptoms; twice weekly Chinese acupuncture and daily herbs; plenty of vitamins, water, exercise, and sleep; weekly acupressure massage on hands and feet (to trigger facial twitching through acupressure points); and keeping company with positive-energy friends and trying to keep an optimistic outlook.
There were a lot of days where I felt depressed at times. It took at least 23-24 days before any significant signs of healing appeared. After around day 23, movement began to return quickly with each passing day. There were noticeable improvements every morning in days 23-30, and by week six I appeared normal.
If you have Bell's Palsy, try to be patient during your recovery even though some days you might feel depressed or hopeless that movement will ever return. Some cases require 6 months or longer to see improvements. What I believe worked for me is to keep going to work, going outdoors, and to not let the condition interrupt my camping plans or anything else I wanted to do in life.
During recovery the only thing you can really control is your attitude. Try to stay as positive as you can. Explore non-traditional treatments such as acupuncture or electro-acupuncture (where muscles are stimulated by low current). These treatments can get expensive but I think it's worth making the financial sacrifice to make sure you try everything you possibly can to experience a full and rapid recovery.

Thanks for sharing. I''m on day 10, hating life. You give me hope.
Third bout for me over 40ish yrs, same side. Sucks every time. Face gets a little weaker each time. Nerves also get a little rewired, I tear when I eat.
Wow....well done Sir <3
I already have a hard time when one of my nostrils is clogged and yet this man keeps on living his life. Kudos.
I'm so happy that you've recovered. I'm on my day 5.

I don’t usually comment. And I know the likelihood of Thor seeing this in about 0. But I hope his daughter sees this and knows her dad is missing her, he is thinking about her- he my be one of the strongest humans to ever live... but he sounds like a brilliant loving dad. I’m sorry you don’t get to see your daughter Thor- I hope that changes for you.
All the best, big man. My payers that you can see your daughter soon again.
Hafthor, your dedication to being a champion is second to none but your dedication to being a father is amazing!! I have been there and totally understand where you're coming from. This video has given me hope and a determination to get things sorted no matter how long it takes - your real strength is in your heart and makes you a champion of champions!!
as a father hearing this choked me up. I hope this guy keeps going hard in life. keep moving forward
Stop talking of your ear hole
I don’t think Thor understood Conan wheel joke ?
