Numbness face: Numbness on one side of face with tingling may be due to facial nerve irritation. Ear infection may result in this as well. Make sure blood pressure and blood sugar is normal

Go to ER now: Any sudden onset of numbness in face, and/or one side of body, that lasts for more than a second or two needs to be evaluated right away. The sudden loss of hearing just confirms the need. Please go to an ER now. Hopefully it is nothing, but it is best to be sure that this is not something serious that could get even worse!
