Facial Muscle Control Loss

About a week ago, I awoke with a dry, chalky sensation on my tongue, and soon discovered that everything--even water--seems to taste bitter.  Even with nothing in my mouth, the sides of my tongue accentuate the bitterness.  Later, the left side of my face began to feel numb--as though I had been given an injection by the dentist.  I discovered that I couldn't control my facial muscles, when drinking from a bottle, spitting, and even whistling.  I used to be a good whistler, but can barely form my mouth to whistle now.  I am not a hypochondriac--in fact, I never complain to the doctor, which I visit as infrequently as is possible.  Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
