Has that been discussed here? I know it is not overly serious, but is there any info what causes it & how to eat better when you have it?

I don't know the cause.  I have seen recommendations to keep a good intake of all the B vitamins, especially methylcobalamin B 12.

I had Bells Palsy, twice in my life, once in the early 80's and the next time in 1998.  The first time, I thought I had a stroke, but after many test, it was diagnosed, as bells palsy.  My left eye would not close, so medication was put in daily and it was taped shut.  My smile was all one sided, I looked horrible.  At that time, they did little to help me, but someone told me to rub cocoa butter on the cheek and mouth area, and to move my mouth with my fingers to make it go into a smile position, as I massaged it.  I did it every hour I was awake.  It was corrected, accept for a slight droop, in the corner.  Had something to do with paralysis of the nerve endings.  It happened again two weeks before my second daughters second marriage, I felt so bad, but she wanted me in the pictures.  It has been a permanent reminder, of a bad time, for me.  She treasures the mother daughter picture, so that is what is important.  It also got well except for the tiny droop.  Good thing is I can smile big, only when I look serious, can I see the droop.

Geminisue,
My grandmere got Bells palsy when she was in her 70's. She really worked hard at her therapy and within a few months it was gone.
My mother (grandmere's daughter) had it in her 60's. She had to fight it for about 5 months. Now that she is almost 80 only has a little tearing in one eye and a very slight droopy lip ...both on the same side of her face.
I am almost 60 and am afraid I might get it as I have weird sporadic twitches.
I've heard it is related to chicken pox/shingles.

I had Bells Palsy when I was 29. They gave me some kind of medicine (cortisol? and it went away after about 3 or 4 weeks.

Go to a doctor immediately!

I myself relate it to stress, big time, not sure just my thoughts.  Never heard of a connection to chicken pox/shingles.  I had chicken pox as a child, just recently heard about shingles, found out there is a shot against it, but it is a couple hundred dollars, so I didn't get it.  I'm going to think positive, and with positive thinking, will not get it.

Thanks for the help. The person went to the dr. about 6 days after the symptoms. He got cortisone & something else as well as eyes drops. The eye got better the next day. The cortisone is for a week. I hope he won't need it too long. I'm sure stress has a lot to do with it. He also handled some chemical the day before & thought he might have contaminated his mouth & eye, but the dr. says that isn't it.  Of course, we know that there are so many toxic chemicals around that I bet there may be some connection.
