The left side of my friend's face has kind of had a semi paralytic attack..?
she cannot blink one eye properly, finds it difficult to talk or eat.Her face doesnt show any major deconstruction except a slight twist of her mouth.She has apparently consulted a neuro surgeon and has been given a prescription (which she is following).But, i dont see any development! I don't think she has been given any excercise to practise.This is not the first time i'm seeing this happen here yet, i quite havent figured out what the problem is and what the solution could be! Any suggestions are welcome!The first person i knew had this, has only partially recovered after 6 months!Both are 24-25 years old.

I'm not a doctor, but the symptoms sound like Bell's Palsy (def'n: A unilateral facial muscle paralysis of sudden onset, resulting from trauma, compression, or infection of the facial nerve and characterized by muscle weakness and a distorted facial expression).
Check out the following websites for mor information.

sounds like Bells Palsy; I'm not sure if that's the correct spelling, but I know it will cause one side of the face to sag and be paralyzed. As far as I know, this is curable.

This happened to my mom a couple years ago. She ended up have Bells Palsy. (Sorry about spelling) It ended up going away on its own after awhile. But, I would still get another opinion from a different doctor!

It sure sounds like Bell's Palsy. Half the side of your face is paralyzed. My niece and grandmom both had it. It can take quite a while to recover from, but both of my family members did well.

Most likely bell's palsy. Even with the anti-viral and steroids (which I'm guessing are her prescriptions), recovery can be slow. My husband recovered fairly quickly, but it was probably 4-6 weeks start to finish for him. Others can take longer.

With BP, you don't really have any exercises to do. Not in the early stages anyway. Massage can be done, but there's nothing you need to do except wait!

There was an excellent site that I went to for info on this: http://www.bellspalsy.ws/

Could be Bells Palsy. This usually does clear up though. I think your friend should get a second opinion. If it was a stroke they should have gone to the emergency room right away. Don't let another day go by without another opinion, remember Doctors are practicing, they really are not God.... Best of Luck!!

it definitely sounds like bells palsy, which is thought to be a virus hence the medicine they gave her. they actually do not know the exact cause of it or any way to prevent it. it is very common, and can re-occur at some point in the persons life too. there is really nothing you can do to make it go away faster, taking the meds as soon as possible and getting eye drops if the eye wont close ( since the cornea can get scratched easily like this ) and wearing an eye patch if needed , which can be purchased at any drug store. the effects of the palsy can last for months or years , some of the effects may even become permanent unfortunately, but most do clear up in time...so tell you friend it is a common illness, and will most likely clear up in time, to be patient because only time will help now.

If it's just one side of her face, it's most likely Bell's Palsy. I know a couple of people who have it and it effects their facial expressions. It's a form of paralysis that most people do not recover from.

It could be Bell's Palsy.

You're describing the symptoms of a stroke. I would get several other opinions and tests to find out what's going on here.

You are describing symptoms of Bell's Palsy. If she has seen a neurosurgeon, I would assume that specialist has ruled out a stroke. Read about Bell's Palsy at the link below:

Bells palsy is a condition that causes the facial muscles to weaken or become paralyzed. It's caused by trauma to the 7th cranial nerve, and is not permanent.

Bell's palsy is best described as an event - trauma to the nerve. As with any other injury, healing follows. The quality and duration of recovery is dependent on the severity of the initial injury. If the nerve has suffered nothing more than a mild trauma, recovery can be very fast, taking several days to several weeks. An "average" recovery is likely to take between a few weeks and a few months. The nerve regenerates at a rate of approximately 1-2 millimeters per day, and can continue to regenerate for 18 months, probably even longer. Improvement of appearance can continue beyond that time frame.

AND:

The paralysis causes distortion of facial features and interferes with normal functions, such as closing the eye and eating.

The onset of Bell's palsy is usually sudden. Many people wake up in the morning and find that one side of their face is paralyzed. Patients often fear that they have suffered a stroke, but Bell's palsy is not related to stroke. Milder symptoms include tingling around the lips or a dry eye, and usually progress quickly, reaching maximum severity in 48 hours or less.

An interesting fact: George Clooney had Bell's Palsy as a teenager and made a complete recovery.
