Difference between bells palsy and trigeminal neuralgia?

Bell's Palsy is caused by a herpes virus and causes temporary partial facial paralysis in one side of the face. Trigeminal neuralgia is, quite literally, pain in the trigeminal nerve or areas affected by the trigeminal nerve. There is very rarely pain with Bell's Palsy (other than if the cornea dries out due to the eye not shutting during sleep), but trigeminal neuralgia does cause severe pain and inflammation to the face. Also, Bell's Palsy only affects one side (it is so rare that both sides would be affected that it can be considered practically impossible), but trigeminal neuralgia could affect both sides of the face. Bell's Palsy can lead to Trigeminal Neuralgia in a very small percentage of patients although this is very rare.
