Brief Answer:
Get a tailored scan for facial nerve done.

Detailed Answer:

If these symptoms have appeared after trauma, then we can assume its related to facial nerve.

You need to get a scan of for facial nerve done.Regular scan may not show facial nerve properly.

Facial nerve passes through bony canal and injury to canal or impingement of nerve can cause such symptoms.

Discussing this with your doctor can help you plan a scan.Hope this helps.Regards

My daughter will be 12 next month and still has bed wetting accidents. I believe she is considered secondary enuresis. My mother doesn't think it started until she hit her head years ago and developed a mild concussion. She was released from the hospital shortly after and they said she was fine. I do not know if the concussion plays a part. The concussion happened in October 2006 and she has been bed wetting ever since. I stopped using night time pants almost 2 weeks ago and she has had only 2 accidents. Should I just not give any liquids after 6:30p.m. and wake her up at night to go since she has depended on the night time pants for so long? Or is there possibly a more complex answer.
