Question description

Bell’s Palsy 

A female patient calls the office complaining that this morning she awoke with the sudden onset of right-sided facial pain and noticed that she cannot smile. Upon questioning, she admits to having problems opening her right eye, as well as having drooling from the right side of her mouth. 

1. How would you handle this call?

2. Recognizing this complaint as a possible neurological emergency, and having referred the patient to an emergency care facility, what diagnostic procedures would you anticipate being performed?          

After the patient has been referred to an emergency care facility, you begin to review symptoms and compare Bell’s palsy and trigeminal neuralgia. The two disorders affect the face in similar regions.

3. Compare Bell’s palsy and trigeminal neuralgia.
