Suddenly I have woken up today to find that my eyes have started to water all the time, and it's a little harder to close my left eye than it is to close my right eye. Also with my lips, whenever I smile or make a face, the right side of my lips move normal, but the left side of my lip seems sort of 'dead' as it doesnt move whatsoever, does anybody know whats wrong? This only started happening today and has never happened before in my life.

He should give you a dose of predisone for about 10 days. It should clear it right up.
