Lips Feel Tilted With Decreased Sense Of Taste?
at noon,rnI woke up this morning and my lips suddenly “squinted and my eyes sometimes also” watery, my sense of taste has decreased a little, so do I have Bell Palsy or is it because of the effect I have a toothache? what should I do for the first time? Thank you
Hi Endang, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Bell's palsy is a condition that causes temporary weakness or paralysis of the facial muscles. This can happen when the nerves that control your facial muscles become inflamed, swollen, or compressed. This condition makes one side of your face feel stiff or appear down. You may have difficulty smiling or closing your eyes on the affected area.
However, there are other possibilities for the appearance of these symptoms apart from Bell's palsy, including:
Lyme disease Otitis media Ramsay Hunt Syndrome Sarcoidosis or Guillain-Barre syndrome Facial nerve schwannoma Tumor
The best first step is to go straight to a neurologist. Because if this is true Bell's palsy then he can go away on his own or with the help of physiotherapy, and if this is not Bell's palsy, then to determine the cause must go through a doctor's examination. But if you feel pain, you can take paracetamol according to the instructions listed or use a warm damp towel on the affected face. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
