Information About Bell's Palsy

(also known as Facial Palsy)

Bell's palsy is a sudden weakness or paralysis on one side of the face that makes it hard for a person to move the mouth, nose or eyelid, and can make that side of the face droop or look stiff. It occurs when one of the facial nerves is not functioning properly, often after a virus.
