Interactive Forums where victims of Bell's palsy and other types of facial paralysis pool their knowledge and share their experience as they cope with this difficult and often misunderstood condition.
Our forums are divided into several areas of focus, so that visitors easily find the information they seek.
ABOUT OUR FORUMS...
Our General Discussion Forum is the place to learn about Bells palsy as members discuss life with this condition. Find emotional support as you share with other members living through the Bell's palsy experience.
Many longtimers have never had the opportunity to "meet" others in the same situation. Join the group in Focus: Longtimers, where you can discuss the differences and similarities, as well as share strategies for coping and potential improvement.
Decisions about treatment can be difficult and frustrating. Focus: Treatment is the place to go. Our moderator is a physical therapist for patients with many types of facial palsies (facial paralysis). Discuss conventional, holistic and alternative treatment with people who have recently been diagnosed, as well as with longtimers seeking solutions for residuals of facial palsy.
