hai dear
first of all it is was a Bell's palsy since both upper and lower part of face affected
it is true that some cases of bells have a remanant neuropraxia that gets stimulated under emotional disturbances or stress.
u could try amitryptiline 10 mg at night on a daily basis for about an year and there r no side effects
u unable to look at a camera - I really don't think it is related to facial nerve mostly anxiety related
take care
