Paralysis Of The Face
Paralysis of the face means a person cannot move muscles in a part of or all of the face. If you experience a sudden onset of facial paralysis, seek immediate medical care at a nearby Carbon Health. This could be a sign of life-threatening conditions like stroke or brain damage.
- The most common cause of facial paralysis is Bell's palsy, which is a condition that affects the facial nerve, causing temporary weakness or paralysis on one side of the face. The exact cause of Bell's palsy is not known, but it is thought to be related to inflammation or swelling of the facial nerve, which can be triggered by a viral infection such as the herpes simplex virus.
