My right eyelid does not close propery.

Good morning. Yesterday I noticed my left upper lip feeling numb, so suddenly I spill a little when I drink. Today, I notice that my right eye does not close properly and I cannot wink that eye anymore. I have very few health problems and am puzzled with these sudden symptoms.

Dear Kokaka,

I would recommend that you seek the care of an eyeMD. IT sounds as if you might have Bell’s palsy and the etiology needs to be determined.

Good morning. Yes, your prognosis is 100%. I visited an emergency clinic that same day and I am now well on the way to recovery. I was rather concerned that I may have suffered a mild stroke. Thankfully not. Thank you for your time and response.
Kind regards.
