817 Possible Causes for Facial Numbness, Mutation in the Tight Junction Protein 2 Gene

  • Hypomagnesemia

    It has been recently attributed to a mutation in the Claudin 16 (CLDN 16) gene of the Paracellin-1 (PCLN-1) tight junction protein.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Herein, we report 2 sisters with FHHNC. Both sisters presented at an early stage with hypomagnesemia and hypocalcemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyperventilation

    Hyperventilation occurs when the rate or tidal volume of breathing eliminates more carbon dioxide than the body can produce. This leads to hypocapnia, a reduced concentration of carbon dioxide dissolved in the blood. The body normally attempts to compensate for this homeostatically but if this fails or is[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Acute Hyperventilation

    Abstract In 27 comatose patients with acute head injury, 45 paired studies of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) were performed before and after hyperventilation. In total 676 regions were studied, and rCBF was calculated as initial slope index using the intracarotid washout technique of 133 Xe. The tests were[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Herpes Zoster

    It is particularly likely if there is facial infection.[dermnetnz.org] In rare cases, herpes can infect the facial or eye nerves.[aidsinfonet.org] The overlying skin is often numb or exquisitely sensitive to touch. Sometimes, instead of pain, the neuralgia results in a persistent itch ( neuropathic pruritus ).[dermnetnz.org]

  • Stroke

    A 48-year-old man presented with acute onset of left facial numbness, ataxic gait and double vision.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The symptoms may be mild or dramatic and can mimic a stroke with weakness, numbness, facial droop, and speech difficulties, but these symptoms may only last a few minutes.[medicinenet.com] , especially on one side of the body Severe headache Vision changes (in one or both eyes) Difficulty with swallowing Facial droop on one side Signs of a Stroke The F.A.S.T[onhealth.com]

  • Migraine

    A 45-year-old woman with a 20-year history of migrainous headaches presented with complaints of rightsided facial and hand numbness and paraesthesia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients may also experience nausea, vomiting, anorexia, neck pain, dizziness, changes in hearing, light sensitivity, difficulty concentrating, facial numbness or weakness[migrainepal.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] Often there is a facial droop.[medicinenet.com] Arms: Arm weakness or numbness might make it hard for the individual to either raise both arms or to keep them raised. Speech: Speech may be slurred and garbled.[medicalnewstoday.com]

  • Psychogenic Hyperventilation

    STUDY OBJECTIVE: Elevated arterial lactate levels are closely related to morbidity and mortality in various patient categories. In the present retrospective study, the relation between arterial lactate, partial pressure of carbon dioxide (Pco(2)) and pH was systematically investigated in patients who visited the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anxiety Disorder

    The aim of the current study was to investigate the association between anxiety and cannabis use/cannabis use disorders in the general population. A total of N   267 studies were identified from a systematic literature search (any time- March 2013) of Medline and PsycInfo databases, and a hand search. The[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Herpes Labialis

    Recurrent cold sores usually develop where facial skin and the lip meet.[web.archive.org] About 6 to 48 hours before a cold sore is visible, you may feel tingling, burning, itching, numbness, tenderness, or pain in the affected area.[web.archive.org]
