MS and bells like symptoms

I was diagnosed with MS in 2007 and my disability has been progressing gradually .I lately started to notice a left side  facial weakness and unable to shut my left eye ,my smile looks crooked and when i talk it's like i'm talking from 1 side of my mouth .
Is this a normal symptom of MS or is it something completely unrelated and if so what are the best way to address this problem because it's annoying and makes me want to avoid interacting with people

I would get it evaluated by a doctor as soon as possible. It might be MS but it might be something else.

Agree with HVAC -- it's too easy to assume everything is ms.  I have had this symptom; probably a good idea for your neuro to do a cranial nerve evalutation as well as your regular doc.
