Hello LLL ladies,
I'm back. I just had my second son 5 days ago. I lived on this forum when I was nursing my first. We nursed until he was 1.5 years old.... =) I'm nursing my second one now.
I went to see my family doctor, it turns out I have Bell Palsy where my left side of my face is numb. I was told that this is not uncommon for pregnant women or right after delivery. My doc said mine was mild and that I can just wait and it will get better after anywhere between 1 week to 6 months. There are steroids [prednisone]that you can take that COULD help increase the recovery to 100%.
I think I've decided not to take anything right now, but I am going to wait until tomorrow to see if things get much worse and then decide for sure.
Wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this and if they have any input on the steriods mentioned above.
