Singer and reality show participant Carnie Wilson has been public about her weight battle, and now she is publicly announcing her battle with another obstacle.
Bell's palsy is a form of facial paralysis, which is typically only temporary, that stems from damage to a facial nerve and results in weakness or drooping of the facial muscles on one side. Mayo Clinic says, Bell's palsy can occur at any age. The exact cause is unknown, but it's believed to be a reaction that occurs after a viral infection.
"Just wanted you all 2 know that I have Bell's Palsy on lf side of face right now. Scary, unfortunate, but it goes away. A challenge! Love u," Wilson tweeted.
Wilson isn't sure what caused her case, but the 44-year-old mother of two says she found a treatment that seems promising so far and her rep tells E! News that she is healing well and her recovery is going smoothly.
Carnie posted on Twitter, "Ps Who believes in Acupuncture? I'm treating my Bell's Palsy with it. IT'S WORKING."
Wilson has also battled weight for years, and last March the singer decided to get lap-band surgery, despite undergoing gastric bypass in 1999.
"I needed help. I am looking at this in a more mature and realistic way. I have two kids. I want to watch them grow up, get married and have children. It all boils down to my health," she told E!
