Get checked asap: Could be trigeminal neuralgia, shingles, or other issue. The sooner you get treated the better!

Nerve pain: Sounds like a branch of a nerve is inflamed. Specifically, the fifth cranial nerve, maxillary division. There are many causes for this, but they all need to be investigated by a doctor. Some of these causes are serious. I would suggest a trip to an ear nose and throat specialist.

Need to see your MD: Sounds like there is inflammation of facial nerves. Could be shingles, trigeminal neuralgia. I would recommend that you see your provider to narrow the diagnosis.
