Neuritis of the facial nerve can occur suddenly against the background of viral infections, intoxication, colds, sick teeth, after dental treatment, etc. It's just that one morning a person feels pain on one side of his face, his eyes and mouth are twisted, it becomes impossible to eat and talk, even brushing his teeth turns into a whole problem.
It is necessary
- - consultation with a neurologist;
- - hospital treatment;
- - a course of aftercare therapy.
To get rid of this disease, you need to immediately take a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug and contact a neurologist. The sooner treatment is started, the more likely it will be successful. Do not use any alternative methods for treating the trigeminal nerve, as this will delay the time, and it will take longer to be treated. Only in a hospital setting can a complete cure be achieved. No neurologist will prescribe outpatient therapy.
In the hospital, a course of antibiotic therapy, physiotherapy, intravenous droppers with drugs that improve blood circulation in the brain are carried out. A course of anti-inflammatory hormone therapy, sedative injections are prescribed.
The course of treatment can last from 14 to 30 days, depending on the results of therapy. In some cases, full recovery takes from six months to a year. All this time, face asymmetry is present and the patient is prescribed acupuncture, reflexology, facial muscle gymnastics, massage. Even in the hospital, correction with a plaster begins. To do this, the patient in front of the mirror fixes the eyebrow, eyes, lips, with a plaster in a normal position for 2-3 hours several times a day.
If the patient turned to a neurologist at the wrong time, then pathology and asymmetry can remain for life. After discharge from the hospital, in addition to the prescribed drugs and procedures, you can warm up the facial nerve with paraffin compresses, red and blue lamps, and salt. It is imperative to undergo an additional full course of acupuncture, reflexology, and magnetic resonance imaging of the brain, because very often neuritis develops against the background of multiple sclerosis or intracranial pressure.
Only after a full course of treatment, performing all the necessary procedures, can one hope for a complete cure and restoration of the symmetrical shape of the face.
