Singer Carnie Wilson has been diagnosed with a temporary form of facial paralysis.

The Wilson Phillips star is suffering from a bout of Bell's palsy on the left side of her face, however she's confident the condition, which weakens muscles and causes drooping, will subside in the coming weeks.

Announcing the news in a post on her page, she wrote, "Just wanted you all 2 know that I have Bell's Palsy on lf (left) side of face right now. Scary, unfortunate, but it goes away. A challenge! Love u."

And the 44 year old reveals her body is already starting to respond to treatment.

She later tweeted, "I am listening to Frank Sinatra. Really calming. Ps Who believes in Acupuncture? I'm treating my Bell's Palsy with it. It's Working."
