Drooping eyelids and facial numbness
Top of the page Check Your Symptoms. Facial problems can be caused by a minor problem or a serious condition. Symptoms may include pain, swelling, or facial weakness or numbness. You may feel these symptoms in your teeth, jaw, tongue, ear, sinuses, eyes, salivary glands, blood vessels, or nerves. Common causes of facial problems include infection, conditions that affect the skin of the face, and other diseases. Treatment depends on what is causing your facial problem.

The main symptom is muscle weakness on one side of the face, causing the face to droop.
Error: This is required. Error: Not a valid value. Often, facial droop will get better by itself, but sometimes the cause is a serious problem — such as a stroke — so you should see a doctor if you notice your face is drooping. In the case of a stroke , the facial droop will come on suddenly, and other muscles on one side of the body might also be affected.
