407 Possible Causes for Bell's Palsy, Facial Numbness, Impaired Balance, Vertigo

  • Acoustic Neuroma

    Five-year actuarial rates for any new facial weakness, facial numbness, hearing-level preservation, and preservation of testable speech discrimination were 1.1 0.8%, 2.6 1.2%[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although acoustic neuromas mostly originate from the upper part of the balance nerve, vertigo and impaired balance rank only in third place as a symptom of an acoustic neuroma[acoustic-neuroma-brain-tumour.org] In this particular case, the facial nerve was damaged causing hearing loss and Bell's palsy on the affected side.[scielo.br] Rotatory vertigo was also experienced in 34 patients (19.1%). Of the 34 patients with cystic lesions, 29.4% (10) had rotatory vertigo.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Other signs and symptoms of MS may include: Facial pain Vertigo Hearing loss Painful muscle spasms Weakness in one or more of the arms or legs Tingling or numbness Electrical-type[emedicinehealth.com] Motor symptoms: spasticity, spasms, ataxia, impaired balance and gait. Speech and swallowing: dysarthria, dysphonia, dysphagia.[physio-pedia.com] Vertigo, incoordination and other cerebellar problems, depression, emotional lability, abnormalities in gait, dysarthria, fatigue and pain are also commonly seen.[library.med.utah.edu] Working closely with a multidisciplinary team of experts, we effectively treat all issues that can play a part in multiple sclerosis, including: Visual problems Numbness Vertigo[uofmhealth.org]

Positional vertigo is commonly occurs.[explainmedicine.com]

  • Transient Ischemic Attack

    These symptoms include: Confusion or memory problems Difficulty understanding speech or sudden speech impairment, such as slurred speech Facial paralysis Sudden leg or arm[loyolamedicine.org] […] or disorientation Dizziness Lack of coordination or poor balance What causes transient ischemic attack?[symptoma.com] The purpose of evaluation is to: Check for another cause of your symptoms, such as a stroke, low blood sugar (if you have diabetes), or Bell's palsy .[uofmhealth.org] How can we differentiate peripheral vs. central causes of vertigo at the bedside?

  • Hemifacial Spasm

    The incidence of facial numbness is also much less than with PSR, and “anesthesia dolorosa” does not occur. The mortality for this procedure is less than 1 percent.[neuro.keckmedicine.org] It may be associated with symptoms such as impaired balance (vertigo) and less commonly tinnitus. What causes hemifacial spasm?[stgeorges.nhs.uk] Bell palsy occurs in different rheumatic diseases, causes hemifacial weakness, and targets the motor branch of the 7th cranial nerve.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Vertigo suddenly occurred when the patient rotated her head 20 days ago, the symptoms of vertigo were improved after continuous 1 to 3 seconds, and similar symptoms were repeated[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Trigeminal Neuralgia

    Patients who underwent 2-isocenter GKS had a higher rate of postoperative facial numbness, but only 9 cases reported bothersome facial numbness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Many kinds of symptom are present including abnormal sensations, muscle weakness, impaired coordination and balance, visual impairment and trigeminal neuralgia.[trigeminalneuralgia-ronaldbrismanmd.com] Other possibilities of migraine, postherpetic neuralgia, Bell's palsy, and brain tumor were ruled out.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Vertigo suddenly occurred when the patient rotated her head 20 days ago, the symptoms of vertigo were improved after continuous 1 to 3 seconds, and similar symptoms were repeated[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stapedectomy

    I still have hissing tinnitus (13 days nonstop), a heavy head for the last few days, some dizziness and facial numbness on and off since Friday.[tinnitustalk.com] This nerve impairment is called cochlear otosclerosis and one it develops it may be permanent.[michiganear.com] A case of peripheral facial palsy which appeared 8 days following ipsilateral stapedectomy, was diagnosed as Bell's palsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient presented with intractable paroxysmal positional vertigo of the lateral semicircular canal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lyme Neuroborreliosis

    She feels dizzy and her legs are numb, similarly to the left side of her face (facial nerve paresis).[euroimmunblog.com] Chronic encephalomyelitis, which may be progressive, can involve cognitive impairment, brain fog, migraines, balance issues, weakness in the legs, awkward gait, facial palsy[en.wikipedia.org] Bell's palsy and Lyme neuroborreliosis are the two most common diagnoses in patients with peripheral facial palsy in areas endemic for Borrelia burgdorferi.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Bright lights and rapid movements still brought on a feeling of vertigo.[bmj.com]

  • Hemiplegia

    For people with hemiplegia, persistent impairments in strength, balance, and coordination will affect their ability to turn safely.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If there is a small chance that antivirals will be helpful for my patients with Bell’s Palsy, I will continue to use them.[carolinafacialplasticsurgery.com] […] one side of your body, which can include your arm, leg, and half of your face Weakness or paralysis on one side of your body Loss of balance and coordination Dizziness or vertigo[webmd.com] Other causes of paralysis include Nerve diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis Autoimmune diseases such as Guillain-Barre syndrome Bell's palsy , which affects muscles[medlineplus.gov]
