Numbness in head and face that goes away with exercise.

I had what seemed like an acute onset of facial and head numbness about a month ago that hasn't gone away completely. My entire face feels numb, but the right side of my face feels particularly droopy. Though I look normal when I look in the mirror. I also feel tingling sensations in my eyes, mouth and nose. I've been unemployed for about 8 months now, and eating a very bad diet (lots of sugar). With that said, I wasn't diabetic when I was tested a few months ago, and my blood pressure is on the lower side of normal. I've been eating healthier and making sure I exercise at least once a day. The exercise makes the numbness go away temporarily, but it always comes back soon after. I find that just getting out also helps, but maybe I just don't notice it since I'm focusing on something else. What could be causing this?

I'm 25 years old, not overweight, and no health issues to speak of. I should also mention that I went on a very unhealthy diet in which I was consuming about 90% fruits (stupid I know), and that's when these symptoms appeared. I've started eating healthier, and replenishing any nutrients and minerals I might have lost.

In short, it feels like I'm not getting enough blood flow. I spend most of my time inside, and I'm worried that could have something to do with it. What do you guys think? Has anyone experienced anything similar?

I also have an impacted wisdom tooth on my right side, but there is no pain or discomfort. Could it still cause the symptoms I've described?
