Normally people removes their wisdom teeth just for the growth for other teeth. Wisdom teeth has no function in our dental structure. So I suggest you meet your dentist to remove your wisdom teeth.

Yes, the numbness could be from your wisdom teeth.  If they are impacted (which it sounds as though they are) they can press on nerves.  Infection can also make the area feel numb.

If you are in that much pain, I urge you to make an appt with your dentist to have them evaluated ASAP.  Problem wisdom teeth usually need removal so they don't damage other dental structures in your mouth and can cause permanent damage.

Please make that appt.  Once pain starts with them, they don't get better in their own.
Best to you,
