I have this face thing that I don't know what it's called. I'm just 18 and one of my eyes doesn't want to fully close and now one side of my lip (the same side as where my eye isn't working) won't cooperate as well as before. I think it started when my ear was hurting and now my right side of my face isn't working as well as before... I need someone to help me

You may want to look into informations on bells pausy (sp?). My aunt had this, also when she was 18, and it was said to have been caused from depression. You will have to get on medication to balance the chemicals in your brain for you face to go back to normal.

Good luck,

Bells Palsy
What you have is bells palsy. It is not a serious thing. What you need to go is look in the mirror and do some exercised to get the musles going again. They will. I had it over 30 years ago when I was pregnant with my first child. Good luck. Wink
