Half Of The Face Feels Dead After The Insertion Of The Pen To The Cheek?
want to ask. Last year I operated on my left cheekbone and put a pen in. He said the bone was fractured close to the nerve. Then due to the operation, half of my face felt numb. So, how do you reduce it? What should I do? R n
Hello, Titik Novianti II, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Numbness in half of the face can be caused by a history of inserting the pen or other things, for example: Bell's palsy, migraine, TIA, stroke, herpes zoster, to disorders from other organs such as dental infections.
To determine the exact cause, check with your doctor. The doctor will ask you in detail about your complaint, perform a physical examination and any supporting examinations that may be needed, such as x-rays, complete blood counts, and MRI. Treatment depends on the cause. If there is nerve compression, it will "release" something that is pressing on the nerve. If there is infection, the infection will be eliminated by administering antiviral (if the cause is a virus) or antibiotics (if it is a bacterial cause), if it is a stroke / TIA then the handling is further
If this continues, gets worse, is accompanied by severe headaches, paralysis of one side of the face, fever, weakness of half of the body, visual disturbances, impaired consciousness (fainting, seizures), then this is an emergency, so you should immediately consult a doctor You. If you feel pain, you can take paracetamol to relieve it.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
