My mom said 1 side of her face looked like it was drooping, but i didn't think so. if so, & no other symptoms occurred, could that even be a stroke?

It could be a stroke: It could be a stroke, although it would be small. If this is happening, it is important to have it evaluated immediately. Sometimes strokes become worse when the causes are not sought out and remedied.
