Doctor Answers (1) on Pain, Weakness
Hello madam,,your complaints are related to facial nerve, Facial paralysis is loss of facial movement because of nerve damage. Your facial muscles droop or become weak. It usually happens on just one side of the face and is typically caused by: infection or inflammation of the facial nerve, head trauma, head or neck tumor, stroke. Facial paralysis can come on suddenly (in the case of Bell’s palsy, for example) or can happen gradually over a period of months (in the case of a head or neck tumor). Depending on the cause, the paralysis might last a short or extended period of time.Facial paralysis has a major impact on a person’s quality of life. You may lose confidence and feel embarrassed. In addition, facial paralysis can cause:facial pain headaches or dizziness, earaches, ringing in one or both ears, and sensitivity to sound difficulty, talking inability to express emotion, difficulty eating or drinking drooling, muscle twitching tearing of the eye, dryness of the eye and mouth. But your doctor would have recognised this easily. You need a physical examination again, consult a neurologist for this problem
