After Lexus’ ear pain went away, she began losing feeling in her tongue on one side.
The TLC star said that later the facial paralysis started and she considered whether her lip injections had something to do with the paralysis.
She said that it was “really hard to talk” and that she could barely eat because her tongue is paralyzed on the right side.
Lexus went to the hospital to get a diagnosis and was told that she has Bell’s Palsy.

Despite having facial paralysis, Lexus appeared to remain in good spirits during her Tiktok and Instagram videos.
She asked her followers to “send prayers” at the end of her video and said that the doctors didn’t give her any reason of what may have caused Bell’s Palsy.
Lexus added that the condition: “…can just happen.”
Many of her fans took to the comments sections of her videos to share their experiences of Bell’s Palsy and many wished her to have a speedy recovery.
Mayo Clinic writes: “Bell’s palsy is a condition that causes sudden weakness in the muscles on one side of the face. In most cases, the weakness is temporary and significantly improves over weeks.”
