WHAT IS A Bell Palsy?
is an unexplained weakness or paralysis of the facial nerve, the nerve that controls muscle movement on one side of the face. The condition causes drooping on the affected side, and individuals may not be able to close the eye and may experience tearing, drooling and hypersensitive hearing. Although Bell's palsy
is unsettling and inconvenient, it is typically not indicative of a serious health problem and in most cases completely resolves itself.
The Facial Nerve
The nerve that is injured with Bell's Palsy is CN-VII (7th cranial nerve). It originates in an area of the brain stem known as the Puns. The 7th nerve passes through the stylomastoid foramen and enters the parotid gland. It divides into its main branches inside the parotid gland. These branches then further divide into 7000 smaller nerve fibers that reach into the face, neck, salivary glands and the outer ear. The nerve controls the muscles of the neck, the forehead and facial expressions, as well as perceived sound volume. It also stimulates secretions of the lower jaw, the tear glands and the salivary glands in the front of the mouth. Taste sensations at the front 2/3 of the tongue and sensations at the outer ear are transmitted by the 7th nerve.
Bells Palsy is caused by an inflammation within a small bony tube called the fallopian canal. The canal is an extremely narrow area. An inflammation within it is likely to exert pressure on the nerve, compressing it. Likewise, if the nerve itself becomes inflamed within this small canal, it can encounter pressure, with the same result of compression. The nerve has not yet exited the skull and divided into its several branches, resulting in impairment of all functions controlled by the 7th nerve. If only part of the face is affected, the condition is not Bell's Palsy. If, for example, the mouth area is weak but the forehead moves, Bells palsy is ruled out. Trauma induced by tumor, surgery, etc. can occur at a location where the nerve has already divided into its main branches. This type of trauma may spare one or more branches and allow some muscles to remain functional.
What Are the Signs and Symptoms?
The symptoms of Bell's Palsy usually show up about 1 to 2 weeks after a viral infection. The symptoms tend to come on quickly - usually Bell's Palsy reaches its worst point within 48 hours. A few hours or days before Bell's Palsy develops fully, some people may have a headache or feel pain behind or in front of their ears. A person may notice one side of his or her face droops or feels stiff. Some people may only notice a slight weakness, whereas others may not be able to move that side of their face at all.
Other symptoms of Bell's Palsy include :
- difficulty closing one eye all the way
- dryness in one eye
- trouble tasting at the front of the tongue on the affected side
- changes in the amount of saliva or drooling
- hearing sounds that seem louder than usual in one ear
Bell's Palsy affects only the face, so if a person has weakness or symptoms in other parts of the body, the problem has another cause.
