Facial Nerve Disorder
Facial nerve disorder is a broad term used to describe a number of conditions that provoke twitching, weakness, or paralysis of the face. There are many different potential causes ranging from injury and nerve compression to circulatory issues, infections, tumors, or disease. Symptoms may subside on their own or with medical treatment to reduce swelling around the nerve. In serious cases, surgical decompression or nerve grafts might be necessary.
