What could this be am so worried as now I can''t even smile properly my mouth just shifts to the right each time I try to talk or smile.

Hallo Nikki
Please see a doctor, it may be Bell's palsy, a condition where the nerve of the face gets inflammation. This can be treated by cortisone and often it recovers fully. It may also be signs of a stroke if you have high blood pressure or other risk factors. Rather have it seen to

Thank you Dr Bets

I went to see a doctor yesterday and she told me I have facial paralyses, she gave me Tegretol 200mg and Cyclivex 200mg.
