In brief: Bell's palsy

Bell's palsy can occur at age 40.
Inflammation of the facial nerve from various disorders is a cause. I have seen it develop after severe wind blowing against the side of one's face for prolonged periods. Tumor of the parotid gland is a potential cause as is Lyme disease or recent viral respiratory tract infection. It has occurred in pregnancy. It occurs in about 4/10000 people aged 15-60 especial
