Right side of my face has gone numb

Well I woke up this morning and my right side of me face was completely numb. Now it's just 'tight' and I can't really move it (lift my eyebrow, close my eye all the way or at all when I try to just close one), I can't suck through a straw or lift the right side of my lip.
It's a little alarming for myself at least, but nobody else seems too fussed, so I have to wait for my dad to get home to take me to a clinic. The vision in my right eye is a little cloudy and there's a bit of 'pressure'.

I had to work a six hour shift of talking to customers and everything I say sounds slurred.
I doubt the horse forum will be too helpful but I thought I'd share my unfortunate situation until I can get it figured out.

Hmmm...any drooping? How old are you and have you had a fall or any dental work recently?

Bell's Palsy or Shingles. Shingles involves pain. Except for the pain, the symptoms can be similar.

I turn twenty in a week, and I haven't had any dental work recently. It's very strange.

I don't know, but I hope you can get it figured out. Random numbness is never "nothing to worry about" as it can be a symptom of so many things.

That's how my Mom's Multiple Sclerosis started...random numb spots on her legs and back.

Keep us updated, I hope its nothing too serious, at least you're getting checked out
I can remember a friend at school having something similar and it was a type of migraine caused by an allergic reaction to something she'd eaten though I can't recall what it was - too long ago.
