    Question Is Saturday night paralysis related/an indication to brain tumors?

    Hello,

    My father has suffered from Saturday night palsy two days back. He has high blood sugar too. He used to smoke and drink but quit. For years he has been living a healthy life which includes exercise and nutritious food. I am concerned, Is Saturday night palsy related to brain tumors? Is it an indication?

    All suggestions and information is welcomed. Thanks for your support.

    Hi there. Was your dad taken to a hospital? Did he see his doctor? What does his doctor say?

    Saturday night Palsy is usually related to a nerve; not a brain tumor; however, he needs an MRI to see if there is something going on in his brain to rule everything out.

    Are there any other symptoms?

    Has he seen a neurologist? He definitely should have nerve conducting tests to see where the issue originates from.

    Yes, he did go to our family physician who informed him about Saturday Night Palsy. Before that we were thinking it is numbness due to incorrect posture while sleeping. He will be visiting a neurologist this week for further consultation.
