In brief: Not uncommon
Bell's palsy, although not a frequent illness, occurs sufficiently commonly so that most of us know or are aware of someone who has had it.

While Bell's Palsy is an unexplained muscle weakness of the facial muscles (7th CN ), especially if persistent, needs pursuit. Stroke is one concern, my pt last week had a parotid tumor. An oculist may need to attend to the affected eye too.

In brief: Yes
Bell's palsy is a weakness or paralysis of one side of the face.
The exact cause is often unknown but thought many many to be caused by a viral infection. Bell's palsy can affect both men and women. Fortunately, most people with bell's palsy will regain normal facial movement.
