There are twelve nerves in the human body that exit from the central nervous system through openings in the skull, medically referred to as the cranial nerves. The 12 cranial nerves function by maintaining the various functions of these nerves, from allowing the eyes to blink to moving food through the gastrointestinal system, including the ability to sense flavors, aromas, sights, and sounds.
Damage or trauma from an injury or disease from an underlying condition can affect a single or multiple of the cranial nerves and result in symptoms indicating cranial neuropathy. The symptoms a person may experience depend on which cranial nerve may have been damaged.

The cranial nerves not only maintain a healthy function of organs in the head but also, throughout the chest and abdomen. Neuropathy on the cranial nerves can result in symptoms of pain and numbness, muscle weakness, sensory disturbances, and organ dysfunction.
