U nd to go to a dr to rule out a stroke but i dont think it is, i think it is what they call bell' s palsy where the cranial nerve that runs from the ear becomes infected causing partial facial paralysis. It is caused by a virus. Some people get it after being a windy draught. You nd to go to GP so you can be treated and the paralysis will go away.
