Stroke and Bell's palsy are the most prevalent causes of sudden facial paralysis. Central or peripheral facial weakness will be determined by the patient's medical history and neurologic examination. MRI of the brain is essential to check for ischemia, infection, and inflammation if the patient has central weakness. A blood count, a cerebrospinal fluid examination (CSF), a sedimentation rate and glucose level, and serologic testing to diagnose syphilis, the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and vacuities, may be required. Suo-Xi Acupuncture Hospital at Shantinagar, Dhaka, Bangladesh was the site of this investigation. An asymptomatic 41-year-old male patient has been complaining of a right-to-left mouth deviation when speaking. Peripheral Facial Weakness and Central and Peripheral Facial Weakness Charts were used to corroborate the diagnosis of facial nerve dysfunction. In subsequent studies, encouraging results were found. The patient no longer felt the pain of his lips veering to the right as he spoke, a problem he had experienced for years. According to the results of this research, people with Bell's palsy may benefit from acupuncture.
