Symptoms of Facial Palsy
Patients with facial palsy often experience a range of symptoms. These include weakness of the muscles that control eyelid closure, drooling, and facial drooping. In some cases, patients have a history of stroke or another disease that has affected the nerves in their face. Doctors can prescribe antiviral medications to help restore these muscles’ function and prescribe massage therapy to help patients relax.
In a small percentage of cases, patients with facial paralysis can close one eye, but double vision may result from a different condition. This disorder is usually characterized by an impaired or altered sense of taste. Although it can affect either side of the face, the inability to close an eye is indicative of a different ailment. A patient with asymmetry of the face may also experience numbness or weakness in the arm or leg.
Causes of Facial Palsy
Facial palsy can be caused by several factors, including a viral infection or a traumatic event. The condition occurs in both peripheral and central areas of the face. It is difficult to diagnose since the cause of facial palsy is not always known. However, some early signs can help in diagnosing the disease. Moreover, proper diagnosis is essential to prevent the development of additional complications.
The underlying cause of facial palsy is not always clear. A diagnosis of facial paralysis is an important step in treatment, but it is also important to make sure that another disease does not cause the condition. If there are no other causes, your doctor will rule them out first. If the condition is not a stroke, it can be a symptom of diabetes or an infection. If it has not yet been diagnosed, you should consider other causes such as pregnancy or diabetes.

What will happen in procedure?
A nerve graft is a surgical procedure that can be used to treat the disorder. The surgeon uses a cranial nerve to connect the graft with the muscles in the face. This procedure involves placing electrodes on the face and attaching them to a machine that produces a low-current electrical current. The results of this surgery are awaited for several months. It is not a permanent cure, but it does help a person smile and close their eyes.
The diagnosis of facial palsy requires a thorough medical history and a physical examination of the affected eye. During the examination, the doctor should check the condition of the eye. Some conditions can cause the facial nerve to be damaged. The patient should be evaluated for post-surgical problems. If the patient cannot manage these symptoms on their own, they may require surgery. If they have suffered a stroke, surgery is the most appropriate treatment for this condition.
Besides stroke, other causes include stroke, diabetes, and hypertension. People with a stroke are at higher risk of developing facial palsy. In addition to stroke, people with a brain tumor have the highest risk of developing this disease. In these patients, physical therapy is necessary to help them live a normal and happy life. A physical therapist can help the patient recover from this disease and find the most appropriate treatment for their needs.
