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.

Well we're at the clinic now, the wait is pretty long but oh well.

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.
