Question
I have uneven facial tension in the mouth area. My smile is higher on one side than the other and my muscles create more tension on one side than the other. I have had Bell's palsy in the past but the differences were more pronounced. So is there such a thing as a very mild case of Bell's Palsy or are there other possibilities? Thanks...
