See a dentist: Get to a dentist ASAP.. You may have an infection and this needs to be treated.

Infection: It could be an infection, but that's only a guess since you cannot be examined or diagnosed over the internet. The numbness is of great concern, so you need to see a local dentist ASAP to determine what is causing your symptoms.

Tooth/ gum abscess??: Sounds like an abscess of the tooth, the gum tissue or both. Get to a dentist asap
