Actress Angelu de Leon was hospitalized once again after suffering another Bell’s palsy attack.

The actress took to social media to share her health update. She underwent an MRI scan and took time to recover.

“Nope I’m not in my pantulog [sleepwear]. I just entered a big donut for them to see my thoughts with contrast. I’d smile but my face is not moving,” she wrote on her official Instagram account.

Bell’s palsy is a form of facial paralysis wherein the patient loses the ability to control his or her muscles on the affected side of the face.

Despite her health scare, the actress remained positive and took light of her situation on social media.

“Looks like [I] have a [sunny] side up egg on my eye. I need to sleep with an eye patch on my left eye since my lids are not properly closing. Something might poke it at ikabulag ko pa [and I would end up blind]. I cannot risk it. May bells palsy na bulag pa [I already have Bell’s palsy and I’m blind too],” she wrote.

In an interview with the Philippine Entertainment Portal, de Leon revealed that she had a previous bout with the condition in 2009 while vacationing in Boracay.

Nag-MRI ako to rule out me having stroke yung nangyari sa Boracay [I had an MRI to rule out me having a stroke when it happened in Boracay] and to see why I had another attack of Bell’s Palsy… My bad din kasi [to since] I don’t take vitamins every day tapos di ba hectic nung sched namin sa Euro trip tapos beach [then we had a hectic schedule during our Euro trip then beach]. Yung change of weather with low immune system made me vulnerable again,” she explained.

On Thursday, she shared a clip of her on Instagram doing some facial movements; captioning her post with:

“Raising my eyebrows, winking my right and left eye and trying to close both my eyes. See the difference. Hmph! My left face is not cooperating. Suplada ang left face ko. ?? But i’m getting better everyday by God’s grace. I appreciate all your prayers and encouraging words. To some thank you for sharing your experiences with Bells Palsy with me. I also pray that God will strengthen your immune system and receive your complete healing to some who still have Bells like me in Jesus’ name. ??
Keep the faith. God is in control and He has a purpose for everything we go through good and bad. SMILE! Because God loves you more than you can imagine.
When things are not going right in your life the more we should go closer to God. Don’t let your situation define your relationship with God. I love you guys

The actress thanked her fans for their support and prayers and assured them that she is undergoing therapy for her muscle movement.
