Causes Of Fourth Nerve Palsy
...is a corruption of French "paralise" from Latinized Greek "paralysis." In the old days it meant any kind of persistent weakness. To this day Parkinson's disease is also called "paralysis agitans" which is a Latin translation of Dr. Parkinson's original name for it, the "shaking palsy." We've obviously reborrowed the full form "paralysis" into English as well; today ...Read more

What causes bell's palsy? I know its caused by a pinched nerve, im asking what causes the nerve to become pinched?
Bell's palsy...: ...usually is not due to a "pinched" nerve at all. The usual cause of Bell's palsy is a herpes infection (herpes simplex virus type 1, i.e. HSV1) involving the facial nerve. Presumably you are under a doctor's care for the problem? If not, see a doctor right away. If you are, keep in touch with that doctor's office. Good luck! ...Read more
Depends: There are many causes of laryngeal nerve paresis (palsy). The most common cause is after surgery. Thyroid surgery, neck surgery or cardiac surgery. It could be caused by a tumor or mass affecting the nerve. It may also be idiopathic... No known cause - likely viral. If you suspect laryngeal nerve palsy, you should be seen by an ent. ...Read more

Pinched nerve in the spine can cause temp face paralysis Bell Palsy? Started sleeping on right side and started moving left face. Inflammation? Chiro?
Facial nerve: bells palsy is caused by compression or inflammation of the facial nerve. The nerve starts in the brain stem and exists skull away from the spine. In my opinion a cervical spine problem would be an unusual cause of Bell's palsy. Don't think cervical manipulation with a chiropractor would be very beneficial for this condition. ...Read more
Can bruxism, clenching and or TMJ disfunction cause facial nerve palsy? No drooping eye or mouth, just left cheek sits slightly lower when smiling?
Possible, but...: A nerve disorder can have multiple causes. It is possible that a structural, vascular or neurological problem can be related, but you will need to see your dentist or someone who treats these type of disorders to get a careful evaluation first to determine the causes of the problems. Then you can address the causes with diagnostic treatments. Good luck. ...Read more
If you have a pinched nerve in the upper spine and it causes permanent paralysis, is the paralysis only in the location the nerve attaches to?
Yes: That is correct. The muscles connected to the damaged nerves will not work correctly, or will not work at all. Other nerves that are undamaged will continue to send signals to their muscles, and keep them moving properly. However, muscles work together as groups of muscles. That means weakness or paralysis in a few muscles can make a limb malfunction even if other muscles in the limb are working. ...Read more
It can: Some disks can be silent (no symptoms). If a disk is large and compresses the spinal cord (neck or mid back) it can cause paralysis. Very large disks in the low back can compress numerous nerves (not the spinal cord) and also cause weakness in both legs. The size of the disk herniation, the size of the canal (space for the cord and nerves), inflammation, acuity of the rupture influence its effect. ...Read more
Can cervical spine root damage cause permanent paralysis in your entire body? From c1-c8? Can a pinched nerve in this area cause full body paralysis?
Not really.: Spinal CORD runs from brain down spine encased in column of vertebral bones. Spinal NERVE exits between bones providing movement and sensation to a very specific body area. Damage to NERVE can produce loss of function and sensation only in a local area. Damage to CORD can produce loss of function and sensation below the level of the injury. Injury above C4 paralyses respiration - often fatal ...Read more
What is the best weight for the eyelid when treating facial paralysis caused by a blood clot on facial nerve?
It depends.: The weight for each person is different. The weight must be heavy enough to close the eye completely, but not so heavy that it causes partial eye closure when the person wants the eye open. Different weights are tested on each eye before the surgery to determine the best weight to implant. ...Read more
Dr. Andrew reeves lt sd paralysis caused by blood clot rupture on facial nerve surgically confirmed. Pushing up on forehead/brow helps nose brow lft?
Unlikely: The nerves most at risk for injury, especially when the roots of the wisdom teeth are fully grown, are the lower jaw nerves that give feeling to the lower jaw, teeth and lower lip. The nerve that causes movement of the facial muscles is not located close to the wisdom teeth but could conceivably receive pressure during support of the lower jaw. I have not yet seen such an injury though. ...Read more
C4-c5, c5-c6 total disc replacement using 2 mobic-c. Will mobile device get dislodged or crack? Will it cause paralysis/ nerve damage if this happens?
Mobi-C: This is a relatively brand new device, and it is the first and only artificial disc on the market approved for two-level surgery. The data from the company shows good results. Realize, however, that the mechanism of stabilization for this device is very different from others that have been on the market a lot longer. ...Read more
History and exam: Typically the diagnosis of a third nerve palsy is made by a history of double vision and then a clinical exam that demonstrates and abnormality of the opening of the eyelid (ptosis), the pupillary size (bigger) and/or the eye movement. Imaging may be useful for uncovering the cause, but the diagnosis is made clinically. ...Read more
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more
