The Right Face Is Numb?
Hello. I want to ask, I have 2x face to the right, I’m numb so my eyes can’t blink, my mouth can’t be moved. The first time it was in 2009 after 3 months of neck accidents with my shoulders. So before my face was numb, I was injured by an accident, I often got sick and felt hot, like there was a pinch in my veins. Well, last year it happened again and I went to a neurologist and was treated for 4 months. Now it’s cured but will it happen again or not?
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Bell's palsy is a condition of paralysis or weakness of one side of the face that is temporary. This condition will cause the sufferer to have a face that looks down and is often mistaken for a stroke. The difference, in a stroke is not only the face that is affected, but also there is weakness in one side of the limbs and pelo speech.
So far no one knows the exact cause of Bell's palsy, but so far its occurrence is often associated with:
Herpes simplex virus (HSV) Varicella zoster virus DiseaseSyphilis Lyme disease Epstein-Barr virus CMV virus or cytomegalovirus
In addition, his condition also improved in pregnant women, people with HIV, had a family history of similar complaints, and diabetics. Regarding your question, Bell's palsy could recur theoretically. But keep in mind, so far the incidence of Bell's palsy itself is quite rare, and for the possibility of recurrence even rarer. As for your case, you have felt it a number of times, we feel it is important to check whether there are other disorders, such as how big your stroke potential is. To find out this is indeed the best step is to consult a neurologist, even though you are currently not experiencing any symptoms. Tell your doctor the history of the disease you are experiencing, so that further tests can be carried out and precautions taken if any.
Meanwhile, because the cause is unknown, Bell's palsy cannot be prevented. What is important for you now is to live a healthy lifestyle, maintain an ideal body weight, avoid cigarette smoke, exercise regularly, get enough rest, and consume foods rich in nutrients. So, hopefully answering your question.
