isn't bells palsy usually curable? unless it's left untreated. and @skiier682, it's a temporary condition where one side of the face goes paralyzed, and can occur with things like untreated coldsores.
I've had it my whole life there is no cure. It is a herpes simplex 1 virus, just like shingles or cold sores. I get flares where I can't move the left side of my face and they can last anywhere from a week to several months. I have to massage the muscles of my face so I do not develop permanent muscle tone loss.
