In brief: Yes, they can

BP can happen to anyone, but it is more often a result of a recent viral infection like shingles.
Those facial nerves that are working badly can also be damaged by the ms process. Best wishes for getting through this - it must be a challenge.

In brief: Prob not related

Except that they may all affect nerves, these 3 conditions are not felt to be related.
MS and Bells palsy could be related, but it is unlikely.
