Lip: With such localized involvement, I'd consider this to be a superficial nerve irritability rather than a systemic neurological process like multiple sclerosis. It isn't consistent with Bells Palsy. My guess is that this irritability will subside. If it persists or if other anatomic regions become involved, consult a neurologist.
