- One side of the body. (homoplegia).
- Both legs (paraplegia).
- Both arm and leg ( tetraplegia)
7. WHAT IS PARALYSIS ATTACK?

Facial paralysis can come on suddenly or happen gradually. Depending on the cause the paralysis might last for a short or extended period of time.
11. IS PARALYSIS GENETIC?
Paralysis is a rare disorder that causes sudden temporary attack of muscle weakness, stiffness, or paralysis. (PARALYSIS IS A GENETIC DISORDER PASSED DOWN FROM A PARENT) the inheritance is dominant, meaning you have a chance of getting it if ever one parent has the genetic defect for paralysis.
12. WHAT HAPPENS IN PARALYSIS?
