Looks like voluntarly keeping the mouth. What about the mouth during sleep? Hysterical conversion reaction. Ref to clinical psychologist.

Mam.. No stressors present, no family history of dystonia, no drug intake except alprax due to similar episode 1 day back. No episode during night. The movement get relieved by taking bzd, pregablin n pacitane. Her facial spasm range from pout to facial deviation just like lmn facial palsy which was difficult for any normal person to continue in that posture for 30 mins. I also noticed her drinking water in that posture only.

Thanks for sharing
