Asked in Health
Your lower left part of your chin has been numb for two weeks without novacain do you have a bruised or pinched nerve or Bells Palsy?
Bell's palsy is a paralysis. If you can still move the muscles located in that region, you don't have bell's palsy. Also, Bell's Palsy paralyzes the entire half of the face, and does not always cause numbness, just inability to control muscle movement. I can't really tell you weather or not it's a pinched nerve, but it doesn't sound like bell's palsy.

Why did capt deakins have an eye patch?
at the time of filming those episodes (season 4 of Law and Oeder: Criminal Intent), the actor who plays Capt Deakins, Sheridan, began showing the symptoms of Bells Palsy, hence took to wearing an eyepatch. The eyepatch and his Bells Palsy was consequently written into the show itself. By the end of the same season, he was shown without the eyepatch.
