Common Disorders & Their Symptoms

Facial nerve disorders are more common than you might think. These include conditions like Bell’s palsy, a sudden weakness or paralysis of facial muscles and Ramsay Hunt syndrome, caused by a specific virus leading to ear pain and facial weakness. Facial trauma from accidents or surgeries can also result in facial nerve problems.

Occasionally this may be due to more serious conditions, such as a tumour which has spread from a nearby area such as a salivary gland to involve the facial nerve.  Tumours mat be benign or malignant. The key is to ensure you receive the best possible treatment which will hopefully result in the best outcomes.
