Ode to Facial Palsy

Facial Palsy is the pressure on the facial nerve causing paralysis
The cause is unknown but ranged from hereditary to sarcoidosis
The facial muscles on one side is weak and drooping
The eye cannot close properly and there is saliva dribbling

Bell’s Palsy is the most common form of Facial palsy
Smiling usually show up the presence of facial paresis
There is no definitive test available for Bell’s palsy
Physical signs and electromyogram determines the extent of the nerve paralysis

The face is crooked on one side with drooping of the lips
The eye on one side cannot close properly with out turned eyelids
There is blinking or tears in the eye while eating
There is dribbling of saliva and difficulty in talking

The treatment is to start urgently on a course of oral prednisolone
Physiotherapy of the facial muscles is used to restore the facial muscle tone.
The eyes need to be protected by wearing glasses or using eye ointment
Most patients will recover within 3 weeks of treatment

-An original poem by Kenneth Kee

Interesting Tips about the Bell Palsy

A Healthy Lifestyle

1. Take a well Balanced Diet

2. Treatment:
a. Start on a course of steroids like prednisolone (about 40-60mg at first , then tapering off) to hasten rapid recovery.
The steroid usually reduces swelling of the nerve.

b. Antiviral drugs such as acyclovir can help recovery especially when the cause is herpes virus

c. Protection of the affected eye which cannot be closed properly by wearing glasses or an eye pad.
Use artificial eye drops during the day to keep the eye moist.
Tape the eye at night to keep it closed.

d. Physiotherapy of the facial muscles - using facial massage, exercises, and acupuncture may help restore the facial muscle tone.

Tarsorrhaphy, which narrows the space between the upper and lower eyelids, may improve eye closure.
Plastic surgery may improve permanent facial drooping
80-90% of patient with facial palsy recover spontaneously and completely within three weeks.
The remainder usually takes up to six months to recover.

3. Keep bones and body strong

Bone marrow produces our blood

Eat foods rich in calcium like yogurt, cheese, milk, and dark green vegetables.

Eat foods rich in Vitamin D, like eggs, fatty fish, cereal, and fortified milk.

Eat food rich in Vitamins B and C such as green vegetables and fruits

Zinc and other minerals are important to the body

4. Get enough rest and Sleep

Avoid stress and tension

5. Exercise and stay active.

It is best to do weight-bearing exercise such as walking, jogging, stair climbing, dancing, or lifting weights for 2½ hours a week.

One way to do this is to be active 30 minutes a day at least 5 days a week.

Begin slowly especially if a person has not been active.

6. Do not drink more than 2 alcohol drinks a day for a man or 1 alcohol drink a day for a woman.

Alcohol use also increases the chance of falling and breaking a bone.

Alcohol can affect the neurons and brain cells.

Sensitivity of the nerves to the trigger finger may be affected

7. Stop or do not begin smoking.

It also interferes with blood supply and healing.

Facial Palsy

Facial Palsy is the paralysis of the facial nerve from its origin in the brain right to the branches of the nerve in the face.

It is usually temporary.

Facial Palsy occurs as a result of reduced blood supply to or pressure on the facial nerve at 2 areas:

A. Supranuclear (within the Brain)

1. Cerebral vascular lesions

2. Cerebral tumors

B. Infranuclear (outside the brain)

1. Bell's palsy - most common with unknown cause, most likely due to viral infection of the facial nerve after the stylomastoid foramen.

2. Trauma- Birth injury, fractured temporal bone

3. Tumors- Acoustic neurofibroma, parotid tumors, malignant disease of the ear, saroidosis
