Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Sorry to hear about your wife's symptoms.
Are these symptoms worsening further?
Any change in her speech?
Any arm or leg weakness on right side?
Based on her symptoms and history of long standing diabetes, the possibility of stroke in the brain affecting brainstem should be considered.
Next possibility can be onset of Bell's palsy. This condition can be caused by the recent viral infection as well.
Often times, the cause is unknown for Bell's palsy.
Bell's palsy is due to the involvement of the peripheral part of the facial nerve outside the brain commonly near the auditory canal.
The symptoms of Bell's palsy tends to improve gradually with physical therapy over time.
She should get a neurologist consultation and also a brain MRI scan first.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
