Can belpalsy come back after long time ?

I had belpalsy when I was 14. The symptoms persisted for 6 months before correcting themselves I am now 35 and over two weeks ago I had the twitching of the eye and mouth and my eye was watering but the symptoms seemed to subside so I did not follow up but last thursday I woke to find that my face had dropped and I had lost some sensation in one side of my face and felt as though I was dribbling. When I visited the local GP he checked my reflexes and noticed that the knee and ankle on the same side we're also compramised therefore asked that I be seen by the emergency department at the local hospital. The practioner there did not check any of my reflexes but examined my face and concluded that I had oestiomylitis?? I took three days of steroids a combination of antibiotics and anti histamines. Sunday was the last day of treatment. Monday night whilst laying in bed after some exercise(lol) I felt a little funny and thought maybe just needed to roll over for fresh air but then I felt my body heating up rapidly and I got very dizzy feeling like at any moment I would throw up or pass out and very disorientated. I tried to call to my husband sleeping beside me as I was unable to move but couldn't yell out The last thing I remember was thinking don't pass out and get up and have a shower the next thing I woke Tuesday morning. Since this my husbands boss's daughter has now been diagnosed with belspalsy. Please respond as I am a little confused as to what is going on since I was told at the age of 14 this was not a contagious condition and would like your opinion on these recent events please ease or confirm some of my confusion.

Homeopath 's  Response
bells palsy is idiopathic in nature, that is the exact reason,means its cause is not known.It is believed to be becoz of few viruses which remain latent in our body, and even years after when our immunity goes down, come up and can produce a condition of this kind.The chicken pox virus is mischievious for this condition.So far medicine does not declare bells palsy to be contagious in nature.Homoeopathy works best in this condition.If the condition is recurrent, then serious medical attention is adviced.
