It can be alarming and disconcerting to wake up one day and see in the mirror that your face is drooping on one side. You have no idea what's going on so you schedule a doctor's appointment for that morning. Meanwhile you find that when you go to drink your tea it dribbles down your face and there's this pain that's evolved behind your ear.

The effects of Bell's Palsy can be devastating, especially socially.
