The left side of my face has been paralyzed since birth, it also includes a bit of the neck. It is so hurtful for me to live like that, since I am a sixteen year old girl. I was wondering if there is anything I could do to fix it? I don't think it's Bell's Palsy because I was born like that. I really need help.
How are you? Paralysis definitely has something to do with problems with your nerves. Bell's palsy usually resolves after some time. Diagnosis of Bell's palsy includes direct clinical examination and some tests such as electromyography or MRI/ CT scan. For proper diagnosis, have this evaluated further by your doctor. Your medical history and complete physical and neurological examination are essential. Take care and best regards.
