This could be any number of things, some totally benign and some that need attention as soon as possible. I would call your doctor tomorrow (I know it's Sunday, but leave a message) and explain on the phone the sensation you are having and if you have any other symptoms. It could be as simple as a pinched nerve, tooth infection, Bell's palsy (temporary and self-limiting), TMJ, panic, anxiety, or any number of things that are not going to kill you(!) but you should make an appt. ASAP, in case something more serious is going on.

Does the side of the face that's numb seem to be drooping some? If so, it could be Bell's Palsy, which, in time will go away. But check with a doctor as soon as you can.
