Fearing a stroke, I was rushed to the hospital, and after an MRI ruled that out, my condition was diagnosed as Bells Palsy
-- where the facial nerve is inflamed, causing loss of muscle movement.
In the present study CNS disorders like epilepsy, hemiplegia, paraplegia, quadriplegia, parkinsonism, head injury, trigeminal neuralgia and bells palsy
were studied and their association with various skin disorders were noted.
The most alarming symptom of Bells palsy
is unilateral facial weakness.
The 19-year-old's book The Way I See It tells her story overcoming a range of conditions and illnesses since the age of 11 - tumours, a brain haemorrhage, Bells Palsy
, stroke and subsequently becoming deaf and blind.
