Misdiagnosis

Avatar Dr. Kyle Bickel Jun 21, 2019

I think the most important thing to know about Bell’s Palsy is that it is often misdiagnosed. People think everything is Bell’s Palsy when you get weakness in the face and that is not the case. Most people really need to understand that it’s not for them to determine. It’s much better to go to a doctor. Google is not going to give you the answers that you need, nor is any other search engine. If you do have Bell’s Palsy, if you do have another syndrome, you need to be treated and checked immediately. That’s the most important thing to remember about this – waiting a week gives a significant, significant difference in prognosis and outcome.
