They can range from mild to severe and include. -Twitching. -Weakness. -Paralysis. -Drooping eyelid or corner of mouth. -Drooling. -Dry eye or mouth. -Excessive tearing in the eye. -Impaired ability to taste. Scientists think that a viral infection makes the facial nerve swell or become inflamed. You are most likely to get Bell's palsy if you are pregnant, diabetic or sick with a cold or flu.
