Thanks for writing to us
After going through the entire description, I am of the opinion that the cause for your Swelling, numbness
in left cheek, slurred speech, loss of movement in cheek is due to weakness (partial or total) of the facial nerve
It develops suddenly or over a period of 48 hours. Often it is first noticed by a patient's family member as a crooked smile or slurred speech.
Patients have normal or near-normal recovery without any treatment. It is a minority of patients at risk for moderate to poor recovery that are trying to help with treatment. Use of steroids
, such as prednisone
or methylprednisolone, to reduce inflammation within the nerve may hasten and improve facial nerve recovery.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
