In brief: No

The parotid gland is in close proximity to the facial nerve which is strictly motor in function.
Whether inflammation from stone in duct or tumor mass compromising this nerve, weakness occurs on that side with face pulling toward functional nerve. The trigeminal n. V has sensory components which when involved ie mandibular branch can cause numbness.
