I didn't know what it was either so I looked it up. Here is the definition from the Mayo clinic and the link:
Small vessel disease is a condition in which the small arteries in the heart become narrowed. Small vessel disease causes signs and symptoms of heart disease, such as chest pain (angina).

http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/small-vessel-disease/basics/definition/con-20032544

If I were you I would call the dr's office and ask to speak with a nurse. Let her know about the facial weakness and ask what you should do. Also see if you can be put on a list that if anyone cancels you can get your appointment bumped up. I hope this helps. The link also shows everything from walking you through what you will need for your appointment to home remedies you can take. Best wishes, Sissie
