Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You probably are having a Transient ischemic attack which can be a forerunner for stroke or Trigeminal neuralgia. Both require adequate investigations and management. Kindly go to the ER and get examined and tested to rule out a TIA or stroke which is most important. You need to get your blood pressure under control to prevent a stroke. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet everyday for antioxidant effect, drink plenty of water. Brisk walking everyday for 40 minutes a day is very helpful to improve circulation to all body organs as well. Get your blood lipids tested as well.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
You could be having a stroke or Bell`s palsy.
The chances of Bell`s palsy and are more than a stroke.
I advise you to visit your physician immediately and get need to get CT scan done to know if it is stroke or just facial palsy.
please consider this very important and see your doctor as early as possible
Take care
