I have a friend that has Bell's Palsy and she is in her second trimester.  The doc put her on a steroid to help since they think it is an inflammation that caused pressure on a facial nerve (from what I understand).  The problem is that a steroid makes sugar spike and now she has to check her sugar a couple times a day.  Anyone have any experience with Bell's Palsy??? How long is she going to be like this?

That is scary, but hopefully she can keep her sugars in control. I would bet, like so much with pregnancy, it's temporary and will go away within a few weeks of delivery.
