Anita Raey opens up on social media absence, battling bell’s palsy

Popular media personality Anita Raey has explained why she has been absent from social media platforms.

Anita has been undergoing a journey of recovery from a condition known as Bell’s Palsy.

In a heartfelt update shared through her official TikTok account, Anita revealed that she fell ill a month ago and has been on a path to recovery ever since.

“Fell sick a month ago and it’s been a roller-coaster. Am getting better and healing from Bells Paralysis,” she said.

She candidly expressed her gratitude for life, family, and the support she has received from well-wishers during this challenging time.

“I’m getting better and healing from Bell’s Palsy. I’m truly thankful for life, my loved ones, and everyone who has been there for me throughout this ordeal. God’s faithfulness has been my guiding light,” she posted.

Bell’s Palsy is a medical condition characterized by the weakening of one-half of the facial muscles, leading to a drooping effect on the affected side.

According to Mayo Clinic, the exact cause of Bell’s Palsy is unknown.

Experts think it’s caused by swelling and inflammation of the nerve that controls the muscles on one side of the face.

It could be caused by a reaction that occurs after a viral infection.

Symptoms include: Sudden weakness or paralysis on one side of your face.

A drooping eyebrow and mouth.

Symptoms usually start to improve within a few weeks, with complete recovery in about six months.

Annitah’s fans have since been sending quick recovery messages.
