    Default lip weakness

    Yesterday afternoon while applying lip balm, I noticed that my upper lip could not really rub together with my lower lip to rub the balm around. Then, this morning when I was drinking my coffee, I noticed that it was very difficult for my lips to purse together. It is like they are very weak, or almost paralyzed. Has anyone ever had a symptom like this?

    My lupus is supposedly in remission and I don't currently take any medications.

    Update: I just back from my rheumatologist. It turns out I have Bell's Palsy. He said there may be an association w/ SLE or SS, but it is unclear. He gave me some prednisone and an anti-viral and ordered lots of blood tests.
