  • Acoustic Neuroma

    However, there was a significantly higher incidence of facial numbness and diminished facial sensation, but not facial weakness, compared with the whole series.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This is facial palsy, also known as Bell's palsy .[medicalnewstoday.com] 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]

  • 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] 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]

  • Temporal Bone Fracture

Hearing disturbance is a much less common symptom of brainstem stroke than vertigo.[dizziness-and-balance.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] 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 .[mottchildren.org] KEYWORDS: transient ischemic attack, vertigo, vertebral artery, ultrasound, kinking.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    It is particularly likely if there is a facial infection .[dermnetnz.org] Facial paralysis in the absence of vesicles may indicate zoster sine herpete, which can be mistaken for Bell's palsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms and signs of vestibulocochlear dysfunction are not always present but can include hearing loss, tinnitus, vertigo, nystagmus, nausea and vomiting.[doi.org]
