What are some symptoms of Bell's Palsy?
Damage done to ipsilateral side
- Loss of parasympathetic innervation to lacrimal ducts
- No tear production
- Loss of innervation to stapedius muscle
- No protection from loud noises
- Loss of taste to anterior ⅔ of tongue
- Lose parasympathetic innvervation to submandibular and sublingual salivary glands
- Cannot move facial muscles
- Cannot close eye
- Loss of general sensory to ear
