I have problem with occasional facial paralysis but this time it lasts too long and I am desperate for these facial paralysis this is my third one and am afraid I could stay this way forever- I have problem smiling, swallowing and have also problem with shooting my left eyelid-my left side of the face is practically paralyzed and it is kind of a pulled down and I feel pain in my left ear and I don’t have no more taste sensation on the left side of my upper tongue. I look awful and am curious to hear what this occasional facial paralysis could be and what do I do now?

You go see a doc for you need to have the proper diagnose if you want to treat this occasional facial paralysis you are dealing with. It is more likely that you have Bell’s palsy –the same condition my mom was diagnosed with 2 years ago-she had practically the same symptoms and it usually disappears on its own without causing her further complications but if it relapses frequently than urgent treatment is needed for this nerve facial paralyses could cause fibers damage for good and than this problem becomes hard to solve. My mom has frequent herpes virus infection and I remember she was explained that it is more likely that this virus could cause her this occasional facial paralysis and she was prescribed Zovirax that is sort of antiviral med that is suppose to reduce the nerves damage from the viral attacks and she were also taking some anti-inflammatory med I think it was prednisone that reduced her facial swallowness and also massage of your face helps in preventing paralyzed muscle contractures.

I see the lady below mentioned Bell's Palsy and I know this is an old post. Also consider Ramsay Hunt Syndrome for recurring Bell's Palsy.

I had this problem, this temporary paralysis made my life a living nightmare. My doctor tried to explain to me that facial nerve paralysis is a very common problem that involves the paralysis of any structures that is innervated by the facial nerve.

Now, the pathway of the facial nerve is long and relatively convoluted, so like you already know, there are so many causes for this paralysis. You should also know that the most common is Bell's palsy, but as far as I know this is a disease of unknown cause that may only be diagnosed by exclusion.

So, that is why it is very important to visit your doctor.
