Chronic facial paralysis
Facial paralysis is the loss of facial muscle movement due to a weakened or damaged facial nerve, usually occurring on one side of a patient’s face. Causes include trauma to the face or skull, a tumor in the head and neck, among other causes. Facial paralysis is considered “chronic” if it has lasted for longer than 1 year since initial symptom onset.
An unexplained episode of facial muscle weakness or paralysis that begins suddenly and worsens over three to five days. Weakness of the facial nerve will lead to weakness, pain and discomfort on one side of the face or head.
Facial synkinesis is the involuntary movement of facial muscles that accompanies purposeful movement of some other set of muscles. Some patients who have had Bell’s palsy or other reversible forms of facial nerve injury may go on to develop synkinesis. It is essentially a “faulty re-wiring” of the facial nerve that occurs after injury and recovery.
