Our expert says:
It is rare to develop Bell's on both sides of the face. (But nothing is impossible in Medicine!) Bell's palsy usually recovers in most patients. Your doctor will probably do a few more tests just to ensure that it is in fact Bell's palsy and not something else like an autoimmune disorder that affects the nerve sheaths. He may want you to go for a brain scan and some more blood tests for antibodies.
