Is Ramsay Hunt Syndrome curable?

Ramsay Hunt Syndrome is a rare disorder that affects the facial nerves. Its symptoms include facial paralysis, ear pain, hearing loss, and difficulty with speech and swallowing. It is caused due to the varicella-zoster virus, which is also responsible for chicken pox and shingles.

Recovery from the syndrome is dependent on the severity of the facial paralysis. With proper treatment involving supportive care and antiviral medication, the patient can recover in weeks or take as long as a year. The syndrome is generally curable, however, it can cause permanent damage according to its severity.


Justine Bieber shared the tragic news of suffering from Ramsay Hunt syndrome in June 2022. In the video, he explained that he wasn’t able to blink, smile, or move his nostril on one side of his face. He also apologized as he needed to cancel his tour dates to focus on his recovery.

Moreover, he shared that he was doing physical therapy including facial exercises to regain movement. However, it would take time before he would completely recover.

Furthermore, he shared that he is finding comfort in his faith in this time of hardships. He shared his determination for recovery along with the caption “Jesus is with me” through an Instagram story.


The recent rumor of Justin Bieber dying in a car accident also shocked his fans before it was debunked. Due to this, the latest update of him smiling from cheek to cheek again has spread relief and joy among his fanbase.
