The Cause Of The Weakness Of Motion In One Cheek?
Malam.mau ask. Why is my right cheek more agile than the left cheek? Please give me a hint. Thanks
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service.
There are many muscles in the face that regulate facial movements such as smiling, wincing, grimacing, and others. For motor movements, facial muscles are mostly governed by nerves called cranial nerves V and VII. Under normal conditions, facial muscle strength on the left and right is not much different, unlike in the extremities (hands and feet, there are dominant and non dominant are generally significantly different). However, there may be exceptions for some individuals if one side of the face is used more than others.
In addition, another possibility is if there is a weakness on one side, so that the other side seems more agile or easier to move. There are several conditions or diseases where weakness occurs on one side of the face, such as:
Bell's palsy, is a partial paralysis of the face that is temporary. The cause of this disease is not known with certainty, but can heal by itself for several days to weeks. Because the facial nerve supplies one part of the entire face, usually in addition to the cheeks, the forehead, mouth, until the supply of tears and saliva is also disrupted. Stroke, a condition in which a portion of the brain does not get enough oxygen supply, causing paralysis in the affected part. In a stroke, symptoms can be accompanied by paralysis of one hand and foot, headache, cramps / tingling, to a decrease in consciousness. Risk factors that are often affected by stroke are old age, obesity, a history of smoking and alcohol consumption, a long history of high blood pressure, a history of diabetes, and a history of previous strokes. Trigeminal neuralgia. In this condition, the main symptom is partial facial pain (left or right). Often caused by the herpes virus. Another cause is if there is nerve compression by the surrounding tissue, such as blood vessels. Women over 50 years are the group most often affected by this disease. If you feel that the difference is not normal, or if the condition is already bothering you (both functionally and cosmetically), I advise you to consult a general practitioner or neurologist so that a complete examination is performed to determine your illness, and if proper handling is required.
The danger signs that you need to be aware of are signs of stroke, such as severe headaches, vomiting, slurred speech, weakness in the side of the body, seizures, to decreased consciousness. In this condition, immediately consult the emergency department at the nearest hospital.
Thus information from me, hopefully can help.
