Residual Bell´s Palsy Symptoms

My daughter (40) was struck by unilateral Bell´s Palsy 2 years ago. There is residual paralysis most notably inability to control winking of eye when she eats. My question is what medical specialty could possibly help her - physiotherapy, neurology, etc. Thanks for any help.

Hi there.

Bell's palsy would normally resolve completely however, there are indeed a significant few who will have residual symptoms and it will be very hard to predict when this would eventually resolve.  In these situations, it is important to rule out the possibility of a brain problem such as stroke or the presence of a viral infection localizing to the nerves.  A neurologist and a rehabilitation specialist are the two doctors that I believe can provide the best treatment and care.

Regards.
