Why is one side of my face weaker than the other?
As long as I can remember I've only been able to wink with my left eye. But I just recently realized I can't use some other muscles on my right side that I can on my left. Like I can pull up my lip and crinkle my nose on the left side, but when I try to do it on the right I barely can. I also realized when I give a slight smile, the left side of my mouth goes up more. The hood of my eye is also a little smaller on my right side.
Is this something I should be worried about? It's not like it started happening out of the blue so I think it's not a stroke. Could it be because my parents let me sleep on the side of my head as a baby? Idk. I don't really know who to ask because it's not causing me pain or anything. I'm just nervous it might be an underlying problem. Thanks for any advice.
