B vitamins turn the pee neon yellow - that is good, it means you are absorbing them. But you need more B12 than what is in that supplement... MD's who treat Bell's Palsy usually prescribe 1000mcg/day at a minimum. And you may need the methylcobolamin form of B12 instead of the more common cyanocobolamin.
Does Bell's Palsy of the gut count as Bell's Palsy for the sake of your survey? If so, I've had varying degrees of it for a long time. Onset was gradual and usually would come in flare-ups and remissions and it affected mostly my stomach and large intestine, until June 2008, when I woke up one morning completely unable to swallow anything...it was as if my swallowing muscles were non-functional and they spasmed whenever I attemtped to use them. I also felt numbness down my esophagus. Tests showed I also had slow stomach emptying but the doctors couldn't explain why my esophagus wasn't working. An LLND said Bartonella could be doing it, so could Lyme (V.T. Sherr wrote an article about
the gastrointestinal effects of Lyme... http://thehumansideoflyme.net/viewarticle.php?aid=62 ). I still can't swallow much of anything, and it is a whole year later. I hope it isn't permanent...
