See Neurologist: Could be a nerve injury. U need evaluated soon so corrective measures can be made before nerve(s) become permanently damaged and lose function. Neurologist is best for this, however often hard to see quickly. So, likely will need an er visit to assess: go during the day, on a weekday, not a holiday, and plan to wait. Tests/consult take time, but are way faster than out-pt. Bigger hospital better.
