lips and tongue are numb and tingly.

lips and tongue are numb and tingly on the right side like they're waking up from a shot of novacane. My mom is been having this symptom for at least a week now and she wants to know what can cause this symptoms.She's only fifty years old and never had this problem before.She went to the doctor and he said it could be the beggining of facial paralysis. Could it be something else?

I would check with a neurologist on that.  It could be part of a migraine or even a small stroke.
