tongue deviation and Bells.

Great to find these forums, I have a question about tongue deviation.
Quite a few months ago I noticed I was lisping very slightly, I was also sometimes leaking a small amount of saliva, for some reason I put this down to losing a lot of weight or thought that perhaps my front teeth moving with age.
Anyway on the advice of my dentist (who thought it could be bells) I have been to my doctors and am waiting for an appointment to see a neurologist.
I now realize my lisping was probably due to slight tongue deviation as when I stick my tongue out it goes slightly to one side and I can see a little difference with the thickness of my tongue at the sides.
I can also see my right eye and top lip has dropped a little, my ears feel like they are full of treacle and I get an awful bitter taste in my mouth.
So my question is, after all these months and the fact I still have tongue deviation mean this can be bells? I have read that tongue deviation is more likely to be something like MND. Any information, good or bad much appreciated 
