3 doctors agree

In brief: Bell's palsy

Yes. Frequently. This reflects degneration of the sensory branches of the facial nerve on one side of the face, which is injured by a presumed virus in this condition.

In brief: Yes, frequently

Even though the facial nerve is a movement nerve and not a sensation nerve, many patients complain about pain or tingling with a facial paralysis.
This is common.
