Rarely: Bell's palsy can often take a long time to resolve, and rarely can have permanent effects. In very rare cases, symptoms can be caused by a tumor, but you should consult an ENT doctor for this.

A 21-year-old member asked:

Is my dizziness the result of ear infections or dental infections?

3 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in
Dr. John Chastain
ENT and Head and Neck Surgery 19 years experience
Probably not.: Many (most?) cases of dizziness in adults are not related to infection. As an ENT doctor, i often see dizzy patients that have been misdiagnosed elsewhere with ear infections (otitis media). With that said, ear infections and some sinus infections can indeed cause dizziness; dental infections should not cause dizziness. The best way to be sure is to see an ENT doctor.

Does vitamin B12 deficiency cause brain and nerve problems?

Dr. Carla Enriquez
Pediatrics 50 years experience
Yes: In the early 19th century, scientists noted weakness and numbness with B12 deficiency. Recently, B12 has been shown to upregulate neurotrophic factors (chemicals [cytokines] that help nerve cells grow) & downregulate neurotoxic factors (chemicals that break down nerve cells). In other words, B12 helps nerve cells grow and prevents their destruction by naturally occurring brain chemicals.

Consider tumor.: Weight loss and anemia can contribute to both fatigue and dizzyness. The question is is the anemia related to the pelvic pain. Hypothetically the answer is yes. Tumors of the sigmoid colon, rectum, bladder, uterus ovaries or prostate can cause anemia and the related symptoms although high on the list are colorectal cancers. See your md for possible colonoscopy and/or ct scan of the pelvis.
