Re: what causes the right side of the face to fall

I would get a second opinion. I work on a stroke rehab unit and that is definitely a sign of a stroke. They need to look again.

Good Luck & Take Care,

Might be Bell's Palsy or some other damage to the facial nerve.

Bell's palsy, caused by a virus, should improve six months to a year after starting.
