In brief: See an ENT

Bell's palsy is a diagnosis of exclusion - meaning that diagnosis is only given when the precise cause of facial paralysis cannot be definitively given.
You should see a doctor familiar with all causes. Fortunately most are of viral origin and self limited with full to near full recovery expected. However rarer causes like benign tumors, stroke, lyme disease etc etc must be ruled out. See an ent.
