Thanks for the input. The herbs I started today are Coptis two 3x/day, Circulation P two 3x/day, and HH two 3x/day. That's in addition to Ceftin 500 mg. 2x/day and my probiotics. I am starting them at half dose, and if tolerate okay over the next two days, will increase to full dose.
I did not realize this was Bell's palsy, but after reading more info on line, I'm sure it is. When I told my doctor my symptoms, he said to immediately call the urgent number if I have any new symptoms, and I kind of wondered why he said that. I thought all Bell's palsy had facial drooping, and although it feels that way (as well as feeling swollen), it doesn't appear that way when looking at me. I have had this now for almost a month straight and it really is starting to take a toll on my sanity.
Again, thanks for the feedback!
