Actor, Chidi Mokeme Says He Suffered From Bell's Palsy Which Made Him Stop Acting

Veteran Nollywood actor, Chidi Mokeme has revealed that he was battling Bell's Palsy and this made him stay away from the movie scene, IGBERETV reports.

He said this during an interview on Channels TV's Rubbin' Minds. He explained that the illness caused one side of his face to droop. He added that the doctor told him it is incurable.

"It comes like a stroke and sort of affects one side of your face and gives your face a droop.

The doctor said it was incurable. They had no cure because they didn't know what causes it," he said.

He revealed that he had to leave the movie scene to focus on his business while he hoped to get better.

Bell's Palsy (facial paralysis) is a condition that causes sudden weakness in the muscles on one side of the face. In most cases, the weakness is temporary and significantly improves over weeks. Bell's palsy may be a reaction to a viral infection. It rarely occurs more than once.

Bell palsy. But I don't think it's terminal, though it somehow disfigures the face making it look like a stroke victim.

Did your Doctor refer you to a Physiotherapist? If not, he has messed up. I could help you with one if you need

No wonder. I noticed since that his head always seemed tilted to a side while his eyes and cheeks twitched periodically. I thought it was all part of the tough guy swag he adopted on screen.

Speedy recovery to the Ultimate man.

Bells palsy also affect the sufferer speech, there are some words that cannot be pronounced properly just like some alphabets. Chewing is also a problem too. An underlying condition can cause it especially diabetic leading to peripheral neuropathy. Though experts say there are some medication that can help to improve it. So sad to hear this, Chidi Mokeme and may God almighty the great healer perfect your healing. Chewing chew gum all the time will help in giving the facial muscles strength and recovery as well

While that is true, some illnesses are genetic and only manifest at a later stage in life.
