Seizure- Patients are often misdiagnosed with seizure when experiencing symptoms of a stroke. This happens more frequently in younger patients. A seizure can affect only certain parts of the body depending on what part of the brain is affected. Seizure can cause numbness, pain and lack of control of the face and facial movements (( Cejas, Mazziotti, Zinnerman, Nofal & Reisin, 2019). Multiple Sclerosis- This disease can cause paralysis, numbness, tingling and loss of control to any part of the body including head and face. It is a neurological disorder that can leave a patient with minimal or complete loss of muscle control from head to toe (Ball, Dains, Flynn, Solomon & Stewart, 2019). References Ball, J.
