Hi,
Using a fan, while sleeping or while awake, does not cause Bell's palsy.
Bell's palsy is a disorder of the nerve that controls movement of the muscles in the face. The cause is often not clear, but herpes zoster infection, HIV, Lyme disease, middle ear infection and sarcoidosis are possible causes.
