Can a bee have a dislocated tongue (/have it stuck outside)

Found a bee in the morning that appeared to be dead from the cold. In spite of her being seemingly dead, I brought her indoors and tried to warm her up – it worked! In a few hours, while being exposed to warmth, she started to move! After that i gave her sugar-water and she seems to be getting better – but my question is about her tongue thingy. I noticed that the tongue is always sticking out, as if she couldn't pull it back in or something. Is that possible? Can i do anything else to help?

I'll try to post pictures.

(btw, she's in a see-through plastic cup, with the lid opened)
