Relationship between MS and Bell's Palsy?

Q: Is there a link between MS and Bells Palsy?

A: Yes, there CAN be a connection between MS and Bell's Palsy. In MS your own immune system attacks the mylin sheath covering your nerves. If this occurs within your brain, part of your head - the skin - could feel numb - like Bell's Palsy, or you could feel tingles upon the skin of your head.

If you are diagnosed with Bell's Palsy, it wouldn't hurt to ask your Dr. about checking you for MS.

Personal experience. I have had MS for over 45 years, and I have also had Bell's Palsy.
