Possibly/depends,,,: It's possible that this is Bell's palsy but it depends on how severe your symptoms are and/or if anything else might have contributed to this. It could be caused by an infection flare-up or this could be a viral infection like herpes. Apparently, this can have episodes that come and go and may not even need treatment. It'd be best to see a neurologist to be sure. Best of luck.

With all of those go: See your primary care doctor for a thorough workup. There are so many possibilities that 400 spaces here could not do them justice. If you are not getting answers from your current physician, there certainly no reason for not getting a second opinion and even several specialty opinions if necessary to clearly define the problems. Do that at the soonest possible date.

You absolutely need a full and thorough workup.

Urinary losses: Unless you have long standing diarrhea or take water pills, you abnormally lose potassium in urine. Need to see a nephrologist. It is possible that your adrenal gland secretes more of aldosterone hormone than normal. Lab tests would confirm this. There are other possibilities too that need to be ruled out by your doc. It may end up that you will need to take a potassium pill or two, long term.

See doctor...: You need to see your doctor asap so that your mouth, especially tongue and throat, can be examined. Is your tongue a different color than usual? Is it swollen? Any difficulty breathing? Any skin rashes? It is not possible to make this diagnosis without actually examining you so call your doctor today!
