After undergoing a second lap-band surgery last year to help shed those extra pounds, the Wilson Phillips singer recently revealed that she was diagnosed with Bell's palsy, a form of paralysis due to nerve malfunction, on the left side of her face.
"Scary, unfortunate, but it goes away," the 44-year-old mom of two wrote on Twitter last week. "A challenge! Love you." In a follow-up post, Wilson added that she's been using acupuncture to treat her Bell's palsy, and, "it's working."
On Monday, she updated her fans with even more good news. "Twelve days out of Bell's and doing much better!" she tweeted. "All your wishes have warmed my heart and it's making me heal faster! Yay! Remember I go public because it's gonna help someone else with same thing! BTW -- I had it on my right side 14 years ago!"
And on Tuesday, she shared still happier news about her diagnosis on the micro-blogging site. "My smile is 70% back!! Except when kids make me belly laugh! Lol they keep me laughing !! Luv to you all."

Wilson has not yet disclosed how she may have been inflicted with Bell’s palsy, which could be the result of a simple cold sore or other times, a brain tumor or Lyme’s disease.
