Hi Leona, welcome to Connect.
I'm tagging fellow members @africa15 @jakedduck1 who have also written about Bell's Palsy. In fact, @africa15 also just joined Connect today.

Leona, what massage, treatment or facial exercises has your son tried to help recover facial movement?

I was diagnosed with bells palsy almost a week ago, I'm concerned its not that. I haven't found any one with the same or similar symptoms I've had prior to being diagnosed. My doctors wont listen to me. I'm not sure what to do.

Hi @catesfaith, welcome to Connect. I moved your message to this existing discussion about Bell's Palsy. I did this so you can meet @leonasmith whose son also has Bell's Palsy. I hope the 2 of you connect.

Cate, can you tell us more about your symptoms and what you're experiencing?
