Dx with something called "Bell's Palsy"

This Bell's palsy" has symptoms exactly like a stroke, but it is a genetic
condition that is very treatable & temporary in nature. I will have three-four
days of facial numbness, some sagging, & a little weakness all on the left
side of my face, they expect NO permanent damage. I thought I was having a
stroke, thank God it was not! :)
Why do I post this here? Bc if you ever have these symptoms, by all means take them very seriously bc they can be from a stroke and you have about one
hour window for positive treatment before permanent damage occurs. Please-
do not hesitate to get to the hospital. They took good care of me & also
found out why my back pain was so horrific, my level of inflammation was
extremely high & they are treating me for it. My pain in just two days is
down to 1-2%!! :) No surgery done.
I still will need surgery done on my back but thank God they got rid of that
awful & debilitating pain. This is the first time in about 14 yrs. that I've had so
little pain, so, ask about tests for inflammation. Inflammation is a silent killer-
it attacks your heart & messes up a lot in there when not treated. It is also
implicated in Diabetes, depression, heart issues, & other things, take it seriously.
