It’s “the most common cause of facial paralysis, although its exact cause is unknown,” according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.The condition’s symptoms appear “suddenly” over the course of two to three days but can improve without treatment “after a few weeks.” Recovery can take about six months in some cases.A post shared by Susan Egan (@iamsusanegan)Egan referred to Bieber’s Ramsay Hunt Syndrome diagnosis, which caused him to have partial facial paralysis back in June.
The pop star was forced to postpone his world tour following the diagnosis.According to New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital, Ramsay Hunt syndrome is marked by a painful rash around the ear, on the face, or on the mouth.
It manifests when the varicella-zoster virus infects a nerve in the head, sometimes causing paralysis. Even though Disney fanatics won’t see Egan performing on stage, she’s still going to be carrying out her duties as the executive producer behind the scenes.Read more on nypost.com
