Face Weakness / Facial Twitches  

The facial nerve can be affected anywhere along its path from the brain to the facial muscles. The nerve passes through the ear and the parotid gland and can be affected by infections, tumours or surgery to these structures. Often an underlying abnormality is not found (Bell’s palsy) and treatment may allow the nerve to recover.
