Bell's Palsy symptoms usually develop shortly after a viral infection. The symptoms include a headache or pain around the ears, and a stiffness or loss of motion in one side of the face.


Answer by  jsmith (2067)

The classic sign is the drooping of half the face due to the malfunction of the facial nerve which controls a bunch of those muscles. Although rarer, Bell's Palsy can also involve some pain or tingling in the affected region.
