Is paralysis in the lower body part incurable?
There are two types of spinal cord injuries. Complete spinal cord injuries refer to the types of injuries that result in complete loss of function below the level of the injury, while incomplete spinal cord injuries are those that result in some sensation and feeling below the point of injury. The level and degree of function in incomplete injuries is highly individual, and is dependent upon the way in which the spinal cord has been damaged.
The prognosis of a particular spinal cord injury varies depending upon where along the spinal column the spinal cord has been injured, the severity of the injury, and which nerve fibers are damaged. As a general rule of thumb, some recovery can be expected within the first six months following injury. After six months, additional recovery is unlikely

No, it cannot, because Bell's Palsy, by definition, is a paralysis of facial muscles caused by an inflammation of the Facial Nerve (cranial nerve VII). If any other part of the body is affected, then the condition is not Bell's Palsy. Bell's Palsy is not the only condition or disease that can cause paralysis of the face.
HEMIPLEGIA is a type of CEREBRAL PALSY that results from damage to the parts of the brain that control muscle movements. This damage may occur before, during or shortly after birth. The term HEMIPLEGIA means that the paralysis is on one side of the body. A similar medical term, HEMIPARESIS, means a weakness on one side of the body. In children with hemiplegia, the paralysis in the body occurs on the side opposite the affected…
That is called sleep paralysis. It is a function of your body to paralyze yourself so you do not wake yourself up while dreaming. Sometimes, just before you fall asleep you move a body part quickly which awakens you from the drowsiness. sleep paralysis is the function to prevent that. Sometimes the mechanism of it is still active while your mind is already awake. Do not worry, it is not dangerous.
