Yesterday morning I woke up and my right side of my face was numb nothing would hardly move so i called my obgyn and they said for me to come in. they diagnosed me with having Bells Palsy, and gave me some steriods that would not hurt the baby! Today it seems like it has gotten worse. Has anyone had this before and how long should this last. The dr said that it could last until i deliver which is only 3 weeks away i hope, but i look and feel awful.. can some one please give me some advice? (Oh yeah today my whole right side doesn't move and my eyes water all the time and my ear hurts as well especially with loud noises)

Thanks
