  • Biceps
  • Ulnar nerve compression - Biceps/Triceps pain/weakness? (healthboards.com)
  • Anyways, before I get off track, the doctor proposed surgery to decompress the nerve, but I'm real hesistant because I;m truly convinced that the pain I'm experiencing in my biceps (deep dull pain right in the middle) and triceps (sharper pain, comes and goes) is not related to this ulnar nerve entrapment and believe something else is awry.

  • It has less commonly been associated with spasm of accommodation on attempted upward gaze, pseudoabducens palsy (also known as thalamic esotropia) or slower movements of the abducting eye than the adducting eye during horizontal saccades, see-saw nystagmus and associated ocular motility deficits including skew deviation, oculomotor nerve palsy, trochlear nerve palsy and internuclear ophthalmoplegia. (wikipedia.org)
  • Reactivation of herpes zoster virus, as well as being associated with Bell's palsy, may also be a direct cause of facial nerve palsy. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the case of inflammation the nerve is exposed to edema and subsequent high pressure, resulting in a periferic type palsy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Often, since facial neoplasms have such an intimate relationship with the facial nerve, removing tumors in this region becomes perplexing as the physician is unsure how to manage the tumor without causing even more palsy. (wikipedia.org)
