My husband is feeling a bit limp around his mouth nose and eye on the right side of his face only. He's able to feel but the muscle reactions are slow. No swollen or any other side effects showing. I read that this has happened to many people. But how should we deal with this? Would he be ok a few hours later? Or is this an emergency situation?
