    Bells Palsy is a separate phenomenon and more likely than not has an origin in a small herpetic virus but there is no certainty in that. Bells Palsy affects one side of the face and the migraine headache may be on that side of the head. A definite correlation between the two is not forthcoming. Treatments are very different and Bells Palsy should be treated aggressively with appropriate steroids and anti-viral medications.
