In brief: Not usually
Bell's palsy typically only has facial weakness or paralysis.
Other symptoms such as dizziness are not common. It is important to have a thorough evaluation by an ear nose and throat specialist to make sure there is not some other problem like a tumor growth.

Getting an MRI or CT scan will be helpful in ruling out tumors or significant inflammation impacting the cranial nerves as they emerge from the brain and exit the skull.
