If one of my party members is paralyzed, is there a visual change that would let me know that?

Paralyzed

  • A paralyzed creature is incapacitated (see the condition) and can't move or speak.
    • The creature automatically fails Strength and Dexterity saving throws.
    • Attack rolls against the creature have advantage
    • Any attack that hits the creature is a critical hit if the attacker is within 5 feet of the creature.

Incapacitated

  • An incapacitated creature can't take actions or reactions.

Nowhere does it mention that it isn't visible but it never mentions it is either. If I am a character is some way to get rid of the paralyze, do I know the paralyze is there?

Depends on what you mean. If during combat, I think there would be a noticable lack of action. You would know something is wrong.

To confirm its paralysis, a medicine check seems appropriate, though I can't find published material stating a DC.
