    Facial asymmetry / TPE

    Does anyone have any info on facial asymmetry with temporal lobe epilepsy?
    Some history: My sister, 38 yrs old, has had progressive facial weakening for the past year. Her doctor attributed it to the severe TMJ that she has been receiving care for over a year.
    Her new TMJ specialist saw her for the first time one month ago and stated that there was no way TMJ was causing the facial drooping - he suspected a slight stroke. She had a normal MRI a couple of weeks ago. Today, she received news that her EEG was abnormal with a diagnosis of TLE. She will see the doctor later this week. The nurse told her that TLE can cause facial asymmetry. She nor her husband can identify any seizure activity.
    We had very little luck finding info on the internet about IF the facial asymmetry is reversible with the proper care. I know there is medication and surgical options for the epilepsy, but no mention of whether the facial stuff can be reversed. I would also like to know if anyone else has had a epilepy diagnosis with no knowledge of ever having had a seizure?
    Can anyone help lead me to some helpful information?

    I meant to say she and her husband can NOT identify any seizure activity.
