A syndrome characterized by the acute onset of unilateral FACIAL PARALYSIS which progresses over a 2-5 day period. Weakness of the orbicularis oculi muscle and resulting incomplete eye closure may be associated with corneal injury. Pain behind the ear often precedes the onset of paralysis. This condition may be associated with HERPESVIRUS 1, HUMAN infection of the facial nerve. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1376)
Severe or complete loss of facial muscle motor function. This condition may result from central or peripheral lesions. Damage to CNS motor pathways from the cerebral cortex to the facial nuclei in the pons leads to facial weakness that generally spares the forehead muscles. FACIAL NERVE DISEASES generally results in generalized hemifacial weakness. NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION DISEASES and MUSCULAR DISEASES may also cause facial paralysis or paresis.
The 7th cranial nerve. The facial nerve has two parts, the larger motor root which may be called the facial nerve proper, and the smaller intermediate or sensory root. Together they provide efferent innervation to the muscles of facial expression and to the lacrimal and SALIVARY GLANDS, and convey afferent information for TASTE from the anterior two-thirds of the TONGUE and for TOUCH from the EXTERNAL EAR.
A heterogeneous group of nonprogressive motor disorders caused by chronic brain injuries that originate in the prenatal period, perinatal period, or first few years of life. The four major subtypes are spastic, athetoid, ataxic, and mixed cerebral palsy, with spastic forms being the most common. The motor disorder may range from difficulties with fine motor control to severe spasticity (see MUSCLE SPASTICITY) in all limbs. Spastic diplegia (Little disease) is the most common subtype, and is characterized by spasticity that is more prominent in the legs than in the arms. Pathologically, this condition may be associated with LEUKOMALACIA, PERIVENTRICULAR. (From Dev Med Child Neurol 1998 Aug;40(8):520-7)
Diseases of the facial nerve or nuclei. Pontine disorders may affect the facial nuclei or nerve fascicle. The nerve may be involved intracranially, along its course through the petrous portion of the temporal bone, or along its extracranial course. Clinical manifestations include facial muscle weakness, loss of taste from the anterior tongue, hyperacusis, and decreased lacrimation.
A syndrome characterized by facial palsy in association with a herpetic eruption of the external auditory meatus. This may occasionally be associated with tinnitus, vertigo, deafness, severe otalgia, and inflammation of the pinna. The condition is caused by reactivation of a latent HERPESVIRUS 3, HUMAN infection which causes inflammation of the facial and vestibular nerves, and may occasionally involve additional cranial nerves. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p757)
Nervous system infections caused by tick-borne spirochetes of the BORRELIA BURGDORFERI GROUP. The disease may affect elements of the central or peripheral nervous system in isolation or in combination. Common clinical manifestations include a lymphocytic meningitis, cranial neuropathy (most often a facial neuropathy), POLYRADICULOPATHY, and a mild loss of memory and other cognitive functions. Less often more extensive inflammation involving the central nervous system (encephalomyelitis) may occur. In the peripheral nervous system, B. burgdorferi infection is associated with mononeuritis multiplex and polyradiculoneuritis. (From J Neurol Sci 1998 Jan 8;153(2):182-91)
The burning of a small, thimble sized, smoldering plug of dried leaves on the SKIN at an ACUPUNCTURE point. Usually the plugs contain leaves of MUGWORT or moxa.
Treatment of disease by inserting needles along specific pathways or meridians. The placement varies with the disease being treated. It is sometimes used in conjunction with heat, moxibustion, acupressure, or electric stimulation.
Complete or severe loss of the subjective sense of taste, frequently accompanied by OLFACTION DISORDERS.
A GUANOSINE analog that acts as an antimetabolite. Viruses are especially susceptible. Used especially against herpes.
A condition marked by progressive CEREBELLAR ATAXIA combined with MYOCLONUS usually presenting in the third decade of life or later. Additional clinical features may include generalized and focal SEIZURES, spasticity, and DYSKINESIAS. Autosomal recessive and autosomal dominant patterns of inheritance have been reported. Pathologically, the dentate nucleus and brachium conjunctivum of the CEREBELLUM are atrophic, with variable involvement of the spinal cord, cerebellar cortex, and basal ganglia. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1991, Ch37, pp60-1)

High prevalence of varicella-zoster virus reactivation in herpes simplex virus-seronegative patients with acute peripheral facial palsy. (1/73)

Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) and herpes simplex virus (HSV) are considered to be the major causes of acute peripheral facial palsy (APFP). One hundred and forty-two patients with APFP were analyzed by serological assays and polymerase chain reaction analysis. Ramsay Hunt syndrome was diagnosed in 21 patients. Of the remaining 121 patients clinically diagnosed with Bell's palsy, VZV reactivation without zoster (zoster sine herpete) was detected in 35 patients (29%). The prevalence of antibodies to HSV among patients with Bell's palsy was significantly higher than the prevalence among those with VZV reactivation (Ramsay Hunt syndrome or zoster sine herpete). In contrast, a high incidence (88%) of VZV reactivation among HSV-seronegative patients with APFP was observed. Our data indicate that VZV is one of the major etiologic agents of clinically diagnosed Bell's palsy and that VZV reactivation causes APFP in most patients who lack antibodies to HSV.  (+info)

Detection of human herpesvirus 6 and varicella-zoster virus in tear fluid of patients with Bell's palsy by PCR. (2/73)

Human herpesvirus 6 DNA was detected by PCR in the tear fluid of 7 (35%) of 20 patients with Bell's palsy and of 1 (5%) of 20 healthy controls. Varicella-zoster virus was detected by PCR in the tear fluid of 2 of 20 Bell's palsy patients but in none of the tear fluids from 20 healthy controls. These findings suggest an association between human herpesviruses and Bell's palsy.  (+info)

Ramsay Hunt syndrome. (3/73)

The strict definition of the Ramsay Hunt syndrome is peripheral facial nerve palsy accompanied by an erythematous vesicular rash on the ear (zoster oticus) or in the mouth. J Ramsay Hunt, who described various clinical presentations of facial paralysis and rash, also recognised other frequent symptoms and signs such as tinnitus, hearing loss, nausea, vomiting, vertigo, and nystagmus. He explained these eighth nerve features by the close proximity of the geniculate ganglion to the vestibulocochlear nerve within the bony facial canal. Hunt's analysis of clinical variations of the syndrome now bearing his name led to his recognition of the general somatic sensory function of the facial nerve and his defining of the geniculate zone of the ear. It is now known that varicella zoster virus (VZV) causes Ramsay Hunt syndrome. Compared with Bell's palsy (facial paralysis without rash), patients with Ramsay Hunt syndrome often have more severe paralysis at onset and are less likely to recover completely. Studies suggest that treatment with prednisone and acyclovir may improve outcome, although a prospective randomised treatment trial remains to be undertaken. In the only prospective study of patients with Ramsay Hunt syndrome, 14% developed vesicles after the onset of facial weakness. Thus, Ramsay Hunt syndrome may initially be indistinguishable from Bell's palsy. Further, Bell's palsy is significantly associated with herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection. In the light of the known safety and effectiveness of antiviral drugs against VZV or HSV, consideration should be given to early treatment of all patients with Ramsay Hunt syndrome or Bell's palsy with a 7-10 day course of famciclovir (500 mg, three times daily) or acyclovir (800 mg, five times daily), as well as oral prednisone (60 mg daily for 3-5 days). Finally, some patients develop peripheral facial paralysis without ear or mouth rash, associated with either a fourfold rise in antibody to VZV or the presence of VZV DNA in auricular skin, blood mononuclear cells, middle ear fluid, or saliva. This indicates that a proportion of patients with "Bell's palsy" have Ramsay Hunt syndrome zoster sine herpete. Treatment of these patients with acyclovir and prednisone within 7 days of onset has been shown to improve the outcome of recovery from facial palsy.  (+info)

Symptomatic unruptured capillary telangiectasia of the brain stem: report of three cases and review of the literature. (4/73)

Three young patients with transient or intermittent focal neurological signs suggesting brain stem involvement are described, in whom high field MRI showed focal areas of hyperintensity in T2 weighted spin echo images, hypointensity in T2* weighted gradient echo images, and enhancement in postcontrast T1 weighted images consistent with unruptured capillary telangiectasia of the brain stem. The first patient was a 28 year old woman who complained of recurrent left ear tinnitus, exacerbated during the menstrual period; MRI demonstrated that the vascular anomaly involved the left acoustic pathway. The second patient was a 30 year old woman who had three episodes of paroxysmal left lip movement 4 weeks after child delivery; MRI showed capillary telangiectasia in the right corticonuclear pathway. The third patient, a 36 year old man, had a transient right Bell's palsy; MRI disclosed two circumscribed areas consistent with capillary telangiectasia in the left corticospinal tract and medial longitudinal fasciculus. Steroid receptors in the telangiectatic vessels walls might account for the recurrent and transient course seen in our two female patients. Awareness of the MRI features of capillary telangiectasia may help in defining the real incidence, clinical correlation, and the risk of haemorrhagic complications of these vascular malformations.  (+info)

Weather conditions and Bell's palsy: five-year study and review of the literature. (5/73)

BACKGROUND: Climatic or meteorological condition changes have been implicated in the pathogenesis of Bell's palsy (BP). We evaluate the influence of meteorological parameters, such as temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure, and their variation and covariation on the incidence of BP and present a review of the literature on the effect of meteorological conditions on facial nerve function. METHODS: A total of 171 cases of BP admitted to our Department over a five-year period were studied. The meteorological database included daily values of 13 distinct parameters recorded at the meteorological station of the University of Ioannina during this period. A relationship between each meteorological variable and the incidence of BP was investigated by applying (Chi2) test on data from 13 contingency tables. In addition, the influence of different weather types on the incidence of BP was also investigated. For this purpose Cluster Analysis was used to create eight clusters (weather types) for the Ioannina prefecture and (Chi2) test was applied on the contingency tables consisting of the days of BP cases for each cluster. RESULTS: No significant correlation was found either between BP and each distinct meteorological parameter or between BP and any specific weather. CONCLUSIONS: Meteorological conditions, such as those dominating in the Northwestern Greece, and/or their changes have little effect on the incidence of BP. Multicenter studies taking into account atmospheric pollution, and climatic differences between countries, are necessary to scrutinize the environmental effects on facial nerve function.  (+info)

Botulinum toxin treatment for hyperlacrimation secondary to aberrant regenerated seventh nerve palsy or salivary gland transplantation. (6/73)

AIM: To investigate the potential of botulinum toxin A for treating hyperlacrimation. METHODS: Three patients with unilateral symptoms of hyperlacrimation (diagnosed as "crocodile tearing") and one patient with a submandibular salivary gland transplant (SMGT) were studied. Tear production was quantified in the resting and stimulated (chewing or following exercise) state, using Schirmer's test and tear clearance. Lacrimal scintigraphy was used to assess outflow. Intraglandular injections (for patients with "crocodile tears") or periglandular injections (for the SMGT patient) of Dysport were administered in divided doses. RESULTS: Two of the three eyes with reported gustatory lacrimation had a higher Schirmer test result than their fellow eye following gustatory stimulation. Scintigraphy, with and without stimulation, confirmed a patent drainage system in these patients. The other patient demonstrated a functional obstruction to tear flow. After treatment patients with confirmed gustatory lacrimation and the SMGT patient had a marked reduction in tearing at 2 weeks. This effect lasted 3-4 months. There was no demonstrable improvement in the patient with epiphora secondary to functional obstruction. Two patients who had received intraglandular injections developed a ptosis, which resolved spontaneously. CONCLUSIONS: This study illustrates that gustatory lacrimation is a difficult diagnosis. In post-facial nerve palsy a functional element must always be considered. However, in confirmed hyperlacrimation botulinum toxin treatment is effective but side effects may occur.  (+info)

Association between Bell's palsy in pregnancy and pre-eclampsia. (7/73)

BACKGROUND: Previous published case series have suggested an association between the onset of Bell's palsy in pregnancy and the risk of pre-eclampsia and gestational hypertension. AIM: To evaluate the period of onset of Bell's palsy in pregnancy and the associated risk of adverse maternal and perinatal events, including the hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. STUDY DESIGN: Case series study of consecutive female patients. METHODS: Women presenting with Bell's palsy during pregnancy or the puerperium were identified by a hospital record review at five Canadian centres over 11 years. Information was abstracted about each woman's medical and obstetrical history, period of onset of Bell's palsy, and associated maternal complications, including pre-eclampsia and gestational hypertension as well as preterm delivery and low infant birth weight (<2500 g). These rates were compared to those previously described for the province of Ontario or for Canada. RESULTS: Forty-one patients were identified. Mean onset of Bell's palsy was 35.4 weeks gestation (SD 3.9). Nine (22.0%, 95%CI 10.8-35.7) were also diagnosed with pre-eclampsia and three (7.3%, 95%CI 1.4-17.1) with gestational hypertension, together (29.3%, 95%CI 16.5-43.9) representing nearly a five-fold increase over the expected provincial/national average. There were three twin births. The observed rates of Caesarean (43.6%) and preterm (25.6%) delivery, as well as low infant birth weight (22.7%), were also higher than expected, although the rate of congenital anomalies (4.5%) was not. CONCLUSIONS: The onset of Bell's palsy during pregnancy or the puerperium is probably associated with the development of the hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. Pregnant women who develop Bell's palsy should be closely monitored for hypertension or pre-eclampsia, and managed accordingly.  (+info)

Effects of climate, latitude, and season on the incidence of Bell's palsy in the US Armed Forces, October 1997 to September 1999. (8/73)

Bell's palsy is a relatively common disease characterized by the sudden onset of unilateral facial paralysis. Using a centralized surveillance system that contains demographic, military assignment, and medical encounter data of US military service members, the authors estimated rates, trends, and demographic correlates of risk of Bell's palsy during a 2-year period. Poisson regression was used to estimate the independent effects of climate, season, and latitude. From October 1997 to September 1999, there were 1,181 incident cases of Bell's palsy among US service members. The crude incidence rate was 42.77 per 100,000 person-years. Incidence rates increased with age and were higher among females, Blacks, Hispanics, married persons, and enlisted service members. Both climate (adjusted rate ratio for arid vs. nonarid climate = 1.34) and season (adjusted rate ratio for cold vs. warm months = 1.31) were independent predictors of risk of Bell's palsy. Latitude was not a statistically significant predictor when demographic, climate, and season effects were taken into account. The results are consistent with hypotheses regarding viral etiologies (e.g., reactivation of herpes simplex) of Bell's palsy.  (+info)

The number one cause of facial paralysis in the US is Bells palsy, which is a term used for any type of facial paralysis that does not have any other associated causes, such as tumors, trauma or salivary gland inflammation.. Recent research has shown that Bells palsy occurs when a virus (herpes simplex, HSV) gets reactivated in the bone behind the ear (temporal bone). When the nerve gets reactivated and swollen, it ends up causing the nerve to essentially shut down. This occurs in a very rapid manner, and most patients who have Bells palsy present have acute onset and immediate facial paralysis. Other symptoms of Bells palsy may include an aura that precedes it or a sensation that your facial movement is inhibited.. Patients who are experiencing Bells palsy should go to their physician or a medical facility as soon as possible to be evaluated. There are several examinations and tests that may be performed to rule out other causes of facial paralysis. Please note that many physicians and ...
Bells Palsy. Often results from local over-cooling of face, head and neck area from cold weather, wind, airco, drafts (driving with both windows open). Additional risk factors are: stress, hypertension, last weeks of pregnancy. Some sources also name diabetes as a risk factor.. Essentially, Bells palsy is a diagnosis of exclusion. If none of the known causes can be confirmed, then the facial palsy is considered idiopathic, i.e. from unclear or undetermined causes. In other words, if the causes of your facial palsy cannot be determined and confirmed, the diagnosis will be Bells palsy.. In one of the following posts I will discuss in details what actually happens during Bells palsy, which damages to the facial nerve occur, and why in some cases we see a full spontaneous recovery, and in other cases the recovery is delayed and complications develop.. - Alex ...
Bells palsy is an unexplained episode of facial muscle weakness or paralysis that begins suddenly and worsens over three to five days. This condition results from damage to the 7th (facial) cranial nerve, and pain and discomfort usually occurs on one side of the face or head.. It can strike anyone at any age, but it occurs most often in pregnant women, and people who have diabetes, influenza, a cold or another upper respiratory ailment. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, this nerve disorder affects about 40,000 U.S. adults and children each year. Bells palsy strikes men and woman equally. It is less common before age 15 or after age 60.. Bells palsy is not considered permanent, but in rare cases it does not disappear. Currently, there is no known cure for Bells palsy; however, recovery usually begins two weeks to six months from the onset of the symptoms. The majority of people with Bells palsy recover full facial strength and expression.. ...

Facial nerve is the 7th Cranial nerve and Bells palsy is a kind of facial paralysis resulting from a dysfunction of this cranial nerve VII (the facial nerve). This leads to inability to control facial muscles on the affected side. There are many other conditions which can cause facial paralysis, e.g., brain tumor, stroke, chronic middle ear infection, and Lyme disease. However, if no specific cause can be identified, the condition is known as Bells palsy. Named after Scottish anatomist Charles Bell, who first described it, Bells palsy is the most common of single nerve involvement disease and also called Mononeuropathy. It is the most common cause of acute facial paralysis ...
Sometimes for no particular reason it seems, some people suffer from temporal weakness or facial paralysis of the muscles in the face. It happens when the nerves that control the facial muscles become inflamed and swell up. Sometimes it also has to do with some sort of compression that results in swelling of the muscles. When this happens, one side of the face droops or become stiff. It might be difficult to smile or close your eye on the side of the paralysis. Most of the time it is just a temporary paralysis and the symptoms go away after a few weeks. Bells palsy can occur at any age but is most frequent between the age of 16 to 60 years of age. Sometimes, it can even affect both sides of the face, but it seldomly happens. What is Bells Palsy? Bells Palsy, or idiopathic facial paralysis, is a form of facial paralysis because of a dysfunction of the seventh cranial nerve. As a result, the facial muscles are affected and influence the mobility of the face. The exact cause is unknown, but it is likely
Bells palsy is called for Sir Charles Bell, a 19th century Scottish surgeon who was the primary to explain the situation. The issue is a type of short-term facial paralysis ensuing from injury or trauma to one of many two facial nerves, its the commonest explanation for facial paralysis worldwide and one of the crucial frequent neurological issues involving a cranial nerve.. Bells palsy can have an effect on anybody, however not often impacts individuals underneath the age of 15 or over the age of 60. The situation is extra generally seen in younger adults, and individuals of Japanese descent have a barely increased incidence of the situation. Onset is fast and in 80% to 90% of sufferers it subsides spontaneously with full restoration by eight weeks.. Its extra frequent in pregnant ladies, individuals recovering from a viral an infection, and folks with diabetes. Recurrences which happen in about 20% of circumstances could seem on both aspect of the face.. Causes of Bells Palsy. The ...
Bells Palsy, a kind of facial paralysis may be the lack of ability to under your own accord control face muscles. However, strategies for strengthening to be able to gain greater charge of the face muscles. Based on the Facial Paralysis Institute on Facial Exercises for Bells Palsy, facial exercises might help enhance the contraction of muscles for individuals who are afflicted by mild to severe cases. The institute claims that primary goal would be to recreate the brain-to-nerve-to-muscle path by regaining the opportunity to conduct facial movements in so doing under your own accord, while keeping focused the loop psychologically. Facial movements should be unlearned then should be relearned gradually and properly to be able to help coordinate face muscles. The idea is the fact that since facial movements become autonomic with time, the entire process of performing facial exercises might help strengthen and re-train the face muscles.. Based on the Bells Palsy Association, a means to help ...
With case of Bells palsy, Baylor coach Mulkey still smiling [...] Baylor coach Kim Mulkey noticed that her left eyelid was drooping, ever so slightly. Dont ask me to smile. [...] I think the distortion of the face is mild compared to cases I have seen before. Bells palsy is a form of facial paralysis, which is, in most cases, temporary. According to the Mayo Clinic website, Bells palsy occurs when the nerves of your facial muscles become inflamed, and may occur as a result of a viral infection. An average of 30,000 to 40,000 people a year are affected by the disease. Besides the temporary facial paralysis, other symptoms include jaw pain, sensitivity to sound, impaired taste, headaches and tear or saliva changes. [...] while during the press conference, Mulkey often covered her eyes with her hand as she looked out to see the questioner, the bright lights on the court arent whats truly bothering her.
Bells palsy is the most common type of facial nerve paralysis. In Bells palsy, the affected nerve becomes inflamed due to injury or damage. Most researchers think that it is caused by infections like the common cold virus or meningitis. Symptoms of Bells palsy range from mild facial weakness to total paralysis of the affected area. Some people refer to the condition as

Migraine headache may double the risk of Bells palsy, a nervous system condition that causes facial paralysis, according to a new study published online this month in the journal Neurology®. The authors describe their work as the first to suggest that the 2 conditions may share a common underlying link. The study found the elevated risk for Bells palsy was present even after researchers accounted for other factors that could contribute to the condition, such as sex, high blood pressure, and diabetes.. Bells palsy affects between 11 and 40 people per 100,000 each year; most recover completely. Headaches are the most common disorder of the nervous system and affect about 12% of the US population. Some possible shared causes for the 2 diseases could be infection, inflammation, or heart and vascular problems. Identification of a common link could facilitate the development of better treatments for both conditions.. Read more about the study findings here.. Posted on December 22, 2014. ...
Bells palsy is a condition in which the muscles on one side of your face become weak or paralyzed. It affects only one side of the face at a time, causing it to droop or become stiff on that side.. Its caused by some kind of trauma to the seventh cranial nerve. This is also called the facial nerve. Bells palsy can happen to anyone. But it seems to occur more often in people who have diabetes or are recovering from viral infections.. Most of the time, symptoms are only temporary.. Most doctors believe that its due to damage to the facial nerve, which causes swelling. This nerve passes through a narrow, bony area within the skull. When the nerve swells - even a little bit - it pushes against the skulls hard surface. This affects how well the nerve works.. Researchers have long believed that viral infections may also play a role in the development of Bells palsy. Theyve found evidence that suggests the herpes simplex 1 virus (a common cause of cold sores) may be responsible for a large ...
Most people who have Bells palsy recover completely, without treatment, in 1 to 2 months.footnote 1 This is especially true for people who can still partly move their facial muscles. But a small number of people may have permanent muscle weakness or other problems on the affected side of the face. Treatment with corticosteroid medicines (such as prednisone) can make it more likely that you will regain all facial movement. They work best if they are taken soon after symptoms start (within 3 days). Sometimes antiviral medicines (such as acyclovir) may be added to corticosteroid medicines to treat Bells palsy. But evidence for using antiviral medicines is weak. They may help in some cases, but in general they do not affect recovery.footnote 2. Some people may not be able to take corticosteroid medicines because of other health problems. Its important to remember that most people with Bells palsy recover completely without any treatment. ...
The present report describes three young women aged 25, 20 and 15 years who presented with Bells palsy. Two of the patients had a past history of the disease, which responded to steroid treatment. All three patients were positive for antiphospholipid antibody (APLA). In addition, one of the patients tested positive for antinuclear antibodies; however, there was no clinical evidence of systemic lupus erythematosus. All three patients responded well to steroid therapy. We conclude that Bells palsy may be one of the manifestations of APLA syndrome, and thus, APLA testing should be done in such cases..

A careful general neurological exam is critical to the diagnosis of Bells palsy and exclusion of other diagnoses. Much of the examination occurs as one takes a history from the patient. One can easily see facial movements during conversation and note lid closure during blinking. Other cranial nerve disorders are usually apparent, as is hemiparesis.. Beyond a careful examination of motor and sensory function, reflexes and the general physical exam, a deliberate examination of the cranial nerves is of paramount importance. One needs to recognize the nature of a peripheral seventh nerve palsy, which will affect both the upper and lower face. This distinguishes a Bells palsy from a central process which primarily affects the lower face.. A thorough head and neck exam is also important. Evidence of cellulitis, otitis, lymphadenopathy, and vesicles (zoster) all may be clues to an alternate etiology.. Likewise, a general physical examination may disclose evidence of systemic disease manifesting in an ...
This condition is often a shock, as it comes on overnight. The majority of patients wake with the facial muscles in paralysis. Most patients either have no symptoms beforehand, or they miss the warning signs, which are subtle and can include neck pain, pain behind the ear, or pain in the back of the head. People with Bells Palsy can experience difficulty with multiple facial functions including closing their eyes, eating, smiling, and their speech can also become slurred. Often, people jump to the conclusion that a stroke has occurred, but thankfully, Bells Palsy is not the result of a stroke, and is also a temporary affliction. While the condition comes on suddenly, it usually passes or gets better on its own within three weeks. ...
Bells Palsy is a condition that is marked by temporary facial paralysis due to trauma or damage done to the nerves in the face. The facial nerve, called the 7th cranial nerve, resided in the skull, traveling through the Fallopian canal (a bony, narrow canal in the skull) and extending from just under each ear to the muscles that are located on either side of the face.. This nerve is mostly in a hard, bony shell with just small portions that are exposed, allowing it to move the muscles on each respective side of the face. The facial nerve controls the mouth (smiling, forming words, etc.), closing the eyelids or blinking, frowning, and similar movements. It also transmits nerve impulses to the saliva glands, tear glands, taste sensations, and the muscles of the stapes (small bone located in the middle ear). Bells Palsy affects the facial nerve, disrupting its function so that messages from the brain cannot reach the associated muscles. This results in facial paralysis or weakness.. This ...

Bells palsy is the most common cause of unilateral facial paralysis and is defined as an idiopathic and acute inability to control movements of the facial muscles on the affected side. While the pathogenesis remains unknown, previous studies have implicated post-viral inflammation and resulting compression of the facial nerve. Reported heritability estimates of 4-14% suggest a genetic component in the etiology and an autosomal dominant inheritance has been proposed. Here, we report findings from a meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies uncovering the first unequivocal association with Bells palsy (rs9357446-A; P = 6.79 × 10−23, OR = 1.23; Ncases = 4714, Ncontrols = 1,011,520). The variant also confers risk of intervertebral disc disorders (P = 2.99 × 10−11, OR = 1.04) suggesting a common pathogenesis in part or a true pleiotropy. ...
Bells Palsy is a relatively common, painful, unilateral facial paralysis of unknown etiology. While often claimed to be successfully treated by chiropractic methods, no standard treatment approach is generally recognized within the profession, nor has any report of chiropractic adjusting technique combined with high-voltage electrotherapy.

MRI scans use radio waves and a strong magnetic field to produce a detailed image of the inside of body.. Computerized tomography (CT) scan: It is also be used to detect other causes of symptoms, such as an infection or tumor. A facial CT scan may also be carried out to rule out facial fractures.. Electromyography (EMG): It is a very thin needle electrode that is inserted through the skin into the muscle. A machine called an oscilloscope is then used to measure the electrical activity of the muscles and nerves. The information provided by an EMG can be used to assess the extent of any nerve damage.. ...
Keep a couple of things in mind as you exercise with Bells Palsy … You need to be patient and work the muscles gently. The idea is not only to regain motion but for the motion to be balanced with the good side. Dont force things to the point that the two sides pull against each other. If you see a motion pulling other muscles that shouldnt be moving, back off a little, and freeze it at that point, and relax the muscles that shouldnt be moving. Keep your eyes on those eager-beaver muscles in the cheek area as you work your eye or mouth. And check the muscle that runs down your neck to make sure it doesnt pop out. Keep the muscle movements appropriately isolated. Pay attention to your face as you exercise - focus on watching and feeling what the good side is doing, and then mentally visualize it on the Bells palsy side and try to recreate it in tiny increments. Use a mirror - the feeling of motion you get while exercising can be very deceptive, so this is important. The mirror will also ...

Overall, the condition is most common in persons 15 to 45 years of age, but the incidence is particularly high in pregnant women (45 per 100,000). Holland and Weiner outlined recent developments concerning the management of Bells palsy.. Although still somewhat controversial, evidence is accumulating that reactivated herpes viruses (simplex type 1 or zoster) in cranial nerve ganglia are the most common cause of Bells palsy. Conditions caused by the herpes zoster virus may be more severe than those caused by herpes simplex virus type 1.. Patients usually are alarmed by the sudden onset of Bells palsy symptoms, which include facial weakness accompanied by change in taste sensation, hyperacusis, and decreased lacrimation. Some patients report ear pain or fullness before the paralysis. Severe pain is more typical of herpes zoster infections. Examination of a patient with Bells palsy shows ...

Looked in the mirror and I looked like I was having a stroke. The right side of my face was collapsed.

There are many causes of facial paralysis that can affect the form and function of the face. Neurological damage, which can happen with strokes and other brain injuries can cause facial paralysis, as can cranial nerve damage, Bells palsy and other health issues. Facial paralysis most commonly affects one side of the face and can be temporary or permanent. For those with facial paralysis, there are cosmetic treatment options that can help improve the aesthetics of the face and may help with function.. With facial paralysis, dozens of muscles of the face can be affected. This can limit muscle movement for the eyelids and mouth, both necessary for many facial functions. When the muscles are not responding, the eyelids may not open and close on demand; it is common for eyelids to droop, but not close. The muscles around the mouth can also droop - one corner of the mouth may sag. Not only are these functional problems frustrating, they can greatly impact the appearance of the face and the ...

Bells palsy is a form of facial paralysis which can lead to the loss of the ability to close your eyes. The Upper eyelid has muscles which open the eyes (levator muscle and Mullers muscle) and a muscle which closes the eyes (orbicularis oculi muscle). When the elevator muscles become weak or mal-functions what results is a droopy lid referred to as ptosis. The orbicularis muscle is supplied by the 7th Cranial nerve also called the facial nerve. In Bells palsy and other forms of facial paralysis this nerve is damaged and leads to weakness of eyelid closure. As the closing of the lids is reduced, the patient experiences dry eyes, red eyes, eye irritation, possible infections and potentially loss of vision. For this reason it is critical to see an eyelid specialist who performs eyelid reconstructive surgery - or an oculoplastic surgeon.. The eyes are one of our most important organs as they control vision our most important sensory function. In addition the appearance of the eyes and eyelids is ...
If unrecognized and untreated, the organism is disseminated by hematogenous spread to multiple body sites. Several secondary erythema migrans lesions may develop and they are usually smaller than the primary lesion. Flu-like symptoms occur and meningitis can rarely develop.

On Monday, after being sick for several days, I woke up with excruciating pain in my left ear. Obviously, the infection had spread from my nose and into my ear - its not unheard of. But where I went with it was a high drama from 19 years ago: I got a cold, it turned into a sinus infection, which turned into an ear infection that the doctor gave me painkillers for, I reacted to the painkillers and spent three days vomiting, ended up in hospital, had a grommet put into my ear and then developed Bells Palsy in the left side of my face. Of course I did. Everyone knows that a severe ear infection can spread to the nerves in your face, and paralysing the whole left side, right? Seriously, how does anyone get a cold and end up having to wear an eye patch and hold one side of their mouth closed when they try to eat or speak? The next time youve had an injection at the dentist, just try saying Bells Palsy. Its not pretty.. And of course, I had a friend whos a nurse, with a nurses sense of humour, ...

To investigate the prognostic value of a three-dimensional dynamic quantitative analysis system to measure facial motion (3D ASFM) in acute facial palsy patients and compare it with subjective grading methods and electroneurography. We continuously recruited 37 patients with acute (| 1 month) Bells palsy. An integrated evaluation of facial palsy was performed for each patient. The integrated evaluation included the House-Brackmann grading system (H-BGS), Sunnybrook Facial Grading System (SFGS), electroneurography and three-dimensional objective measurements. Then, the entire set of evaluations were repeated for each patient 1 month later. The patients were followed up monthly until recovery or for up to more than 6 months. We adopted the SFGS and H-BGS as the representative subjective grading system and final criteria for recovery. Poor recovery was defined as an SFGS score less than 70 or H-BGS score higher than II. Multiple regression analysis was performed to find the best prognostic indicators. In
SAN DIEGO -- Its been a dizzying few weeks for Padres closer Heath Bell and his wife, Nicole, and not just because theyve covered a good section of the Pacific Ocean on trips to the Fijian island of Tavarua followed by a vacation to Hawaii, where the couple renewed their wedding vows last week. These were memory-making trips to be sure, just not for all the right reasons. While in Maui, the two-time All-Star, was hospitalized with what was later diagnosed as typhoid fever, a bacterial infection that worked its way into Bells bloodstream on their trip to Tavarua 10 days earlier. Typhoid fever, if left untreated, can lead to intestinal complications, kidney failure and, in some cases, death. Its something I ate in Tavarua. It gets in your stomach and you usually flush it out. For whatever reason, my body didnt flush it out, Bell said on Wednesday. To be sure, this wasnt what Bell had in mind for a trip to Maui, where he celebrated 10 years of marriage with his wife. The Bells have four ...
Alexander Foulis Bell (1876-1940), businessman, was born on 1 March 1876 at Paisley, Scotland, youngest child of John Bell and his second wife Euphemia, née Foulis.

Established grading systems used to assess facial paralysis and interventional outcomes have well-described limitations. The Electronic Facial Paralysis Assessment, a clinician-graded zone-based facial function scale, has recently emerged as a grading tool that may provide greater sensitivity when assessing incomplete paralysis and postsurgical improvement. The authors perform the first comprehensive validation of this tool. Methods: Video recordings of 83 facial paralysis patients were assessed. Grading was performed in two sittings by three individuals with varying degrees of experience in assessing facial ...

Bell peppers can improve an individuals immunity owing to their high content of vitamin C. the vitamin plays a significant role in the human immune system by activating immune cells among other contributions (10). Vitamin C supports immune responses by increasing the production of proinflammatory cytokines, which are crucial in effective immune responses (10).. In addition, regular consumption of bell peppers can improve immunity owing to their vitamin E content. Studies have shown that vitamin E, like vitamin C, activates the bodys immune responses and enhances the effectiveness of white blood cells (17). Research has also shown that vitamin E intake from dietary sources enhances the bodys antibody response to a number of different vaccines (17). It has also been demonstrated that vitamin E enhances the resistance in elderly individuals to viral infections (17).. Another component of bell peppers, vitamin A, has also been shown to improve immune response in both animal and human models (26, ...

After an examination, the otolaryngologist- head and neck surgeon may conduct a hearing test to determine if the cause of damage to the nerve has involved the hearing nerve, inner ear, or delicate hearing mechanism. Additional tests in the physicians office include a balance test and a tear test, to measure the eyes ability to produce tears. Eye drops may be necessary to prevent drying of the surface of the eye cornea. In some circumstances, the physician may recommend a CT (computerized tomography) or MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) test to determine if there is infection, tumor, bone fracture, or other abnormality in the area of the facial nerve. An additional diagnostic tool is the Electro neuronography (ENOG), which stimulates the facial nerve to assess how badly the nerve is damaged. This test may have to be repeated at frequent intervals to see if the disease is progressing.. Sources:. National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. Bells Palsy Research ...
