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.
