I have followed your advice regarding back pain. My pain is minimal, and I am still continuing with the exercise. Now, I have another problem. My appetite has become very poor, and I cannot eat most of the things I used to eat before. This became an issue even before the Bell's palsy problem. Ater that, it became severe. While I was taking steroids, I could eat well. Now, the type of food I can eat is becoming fewer. I cannot eat spicy food, which I love. It seems to me ingredients like lemon or tomato make things more difficult. There appears to be a major problem with taste. My mouth had a strong metallic taste, and I still feel such a taste in my mouth. The saliva produced is very little, and when eating anything, I have to sip water to eat that. I have to get up three to four times to go to the toilet in the night as well. I am not sure about the new problem. There is an inability to eat most things because they taste horrible and lack of saliva or very little production of saliva. Is this related to Bell's palsy? Or is this a symptom of any other illness? Should I see a specialist? If so, what kind of specialist? Or is it something you can assist? Should I get any tests here? Many thanks for your advice.

Thank you very much for your advice, and it is much appreciated. While reading on the net about various natural remedies, there was a suggestion that one could use cayenne pepper on the tongue to generate more saliva. Another suggested to chew gum or put a slice of lemon on the tongue. I am not sure if it is a good idea. Also, I was a bit worried if I am sipping water while eating, would the brain get used the idea and stop producing saliva? Is there any physio exercises or another method to accelerate nerve healing? Would vitamin B help?
