See Dr urgently!: Headache accompanied by one sided facial muscle changes can be a sign of a stroke. You should see a Dr ASAP and be evaluated thoroughly! A thorough exam and testing/imaging can identify any underlying medical conditions which can then be treated. Delay in treatment can lead to life-threatening complications.
