Patient

Q: My dad has Bells Palsy and the left side of his face cant move he has been this way for a couple of months! will he get better? Is this the sign of a stoke!?

Symptoms:  Bells Palsy
Doctor

A:   Hello thanks for your health query on ATD.

Bells palsy is in true sense is not a stroke. There is involvement of only a single nerve. Usually, it gets better itself even without any treatment. All your dad needs is regular physiotherapy. Surely he will become better.

Best wishes
