QUESTION

Can Botox be used for Bell's Palsy Twitching?

I have Bell's Palsy and although my face looks fairly normal, I have a twitch in my eye, especially when I eat and drink. This is due to cross wiring of the nerve. Would Botox be helpful to me, and if so, where would it be injected?

ANSWER

Botox and Bell's Palsy

Thanks for your question. - Bell's Palsy (both symptomatic spasm and for symmetry) is a medical indication for Botox. - Many insurance plans will cover treatment so call your insurer to check if your covered. I hope this helps.
