Brief Answer:
Get a tailored scan for facial nerve done.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

If these symptoms have appeared after trauma, then we can assume its related to facial nerve.

You need to get a scan of for facial nerve done.Regular scan may not show facial nerve properly.

Facial nerve passes through bony canal and injury to canal or impingement of nerve can cause such symptoms.

Discussing this with your doctor can help you plan a scan.Hope this helps.Regards
