Well, I went through this yesterday.  Was in a store, smiled in a mirror there to,see if it was "even."  Rolled my tongue.  Tried to be sure I could move everything on one side.  I took a nap,after I got hoe to "break the cycle" of the extreme anxiety that developed due to this.  When I woke up, all was well.  I'm still alive today.  :action-smiley-065:  I wish I could convince myself that I'm okay, but the cycle of my anxiety and fear is so strong.  So, yes!  This type of numbness has happened to me many times, unfortunately.

I have been suffering from face numbness for over 6 months. But it isn't actually numb - it just feels numb. And it is not always constant. The moment I think about it, it starts to feel numb. When I am distracted, it goes. It usually correlates with bouts of anxiety. During the time I am feeling anxious, the facial numbness isn't actually present. It is only until afterwards when I have cooled down and recovering that I start to feel the numbness.

It's important to learn your anxiety symptoms so you don't get yourself in vicious circles. I used to do this all the time. When I was anxious about something and then I finally started to clam down, I would then start to experience anxiety symptoms which would make me more anxious again. And this would repeat until I drove myself crazy. So now I can actually keep myself clam despite having tons of symptoms.
