Can Bells Palsy cause headaches?

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.

Treatments are very different and Bells Palsy should be treated aggressively with appropriate steroids and anti-viral medications.
