Hello,

How old are you? Are you suffering from any hypertension or diabetes? The symptoms looks like trigeminal neuralgia or facial nerve palsy. Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. Use tablet pregabalin 75 mg once a day for five days. If symptoms not improved please consult with your physician / neurophysician he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Penchila Prasad Kandikattu, Internal Medicine Specialist
