specific cause of Bell's palsy is unknown, however, it has been suggested that the disorder is due to inflammation that is directed by the body's immune system against the nerve controlling movement of the face. The weakness or symptoms seen in Bell's palsy is sometimes associated with the following:
Diabetes
High blood pressure
Trauma
Toxins
Lyme disease
Guillain-Barré syndrome
Sarcoidosis
Myasthenia gravis
Infection, especially following a viral infection with Herpes simplex virus (a virus that is related to the cause of the common "cold sores" of the mouth)..consult physician for further details
