I am sorry about your son

these are serious neurological symptoms

he should see a doctor right away for evaluation.

he should go to the ER for evaluation.

he needs a neurological exam and brain MRI scan

he may have to see a neurologist as well.

he could have had a viral infection cause bell's palsy,

what did his brain scan show?

has he had an EEG to check for seizure disorder? has he seen a neurologist yet?
