it may be bell’s palsy, which is caused by trouble with the nerve on the other side from where the symptoms are.
i had this when i was 17 and off work with flu.
my mum thought i’d had a stroke and wanted me to go to the doctors.
being a sensitive soul she didn’t want me to feel i’d been pushed so suggested we went for something to eat.
i was hungry so had meat and potato pie.
i didn’t notice that my food was dropping out of my mouth (embarassing) but mum saw it and told me that i was heading to a blister on my chin.
so i gladly went to the docs with her.
he explained what bell’s palsy is and gave me some tablets - some form of vitamin B.
he said the bell’s palsy would clear up in it’s own time.
i had bell’s palsy again just before my diagnosis.
my neuro was very interested in knowing that i’d had it before.
if your face is drooping on one side, it’s likely to be bell’s palsy.
