It looks like it is partial medical 3rd nerve palsy due to Diabetes resulting in drooping of eyelid. It can be cured with eye medication and good control of sugar levels over a period of time.

One month is a precious time lost, it may be a bells palsy only when nerve supplying the upper eyelid gets compressed in the canal. It travels mostly due to a viral infection it causes this condition. Dont waste time, visit a neurologist immediately as time lost may make it permanent.
