I can't tell you if what you have been experiencing is a stroke. You should probably ask your doctor and get a CT Scan and/or MRI. My sister said that when I had my stroke I was waving my hand towards my face because I couldn't feel it. I guess my face got numb, too. By the way, I was only 22 when I had my stroke.
