Yes, known Lyme symptom, and possible start of Bell's Palsy. Vitamin B12 has been used to treat Bell's Palsy with some success (may shorten the duration & reduce severity of the condition). Be sure you let your Lyme doctor know you are experiencing this.

Yes. Have the exact same thing. You act as if you don't know if you have Lyme...have u been tested?
The right eyelid thing drives me nuts. Always happens when I get a bad fatigue spell run through me.
