Hi Vicki. As soon as I read your post I immediately thought of Bells Palsy. Did your doctor view your symptoms as a seizure or a stroke? Here is a brief description of it. Just a thought because my co-worker's daughter had it happen. The problem is that it could be one of so many illnesses. Let's hope it is nothing serious. Jeanne

What is Bell's palsy?

Bell's palsy is a paralysis or weakness of the muscles on one side of your face. Damage to the facial nerve that controls muscles on one side of the face causes that side of your face to droop camera. The nerve damage may also affect your sense of taste and how you make tears and saliva. This condition comes on suddenly, often overnight, and usually gets better on its own within a few weeks.

Bell's palsy is not the result of a stroke or a transient ischemic attack (TIA). While stroke and TIA can cause facial paralysis, there is no link between Bell's palsy and either of these conditions. But sudden weakness that occurs on one side of your face should be checked by a doctor right away to rule out these more serious causes.

Interesting...I had "Bell's palsy" at the age of 17...after annie coiling had some of the same symptoms of Bell's Palsy...
