Could I have multiple sclerosis?

Hi I'm a 19 year old male. Just to get this out of the way, I have had generalised anxiety disorder for a number of years now and my biggest anxiety is always specifically about my health. Anyway, yesterday I woke up and I felt fine. A couple hours later I noticed a weird sensation in my left cheek that I have felt before but usually I get that feeling when I have an upset stomach or when I feel like I'm going to vomit. Although at the time It came on, I didn't have an upset stomach. This lasted all day yesterday on and off throughout the day.

And then last night I had a full fledge stomachache (I have acid reflux disease as well), and my cheeks felt sour as ever and the sensation was there in both cheeks. Eventually the stomachache went away and I went to bed. I woke up this morning and everything felt normal just tired. An hour or so later I faintly started to feel a weird sensation in my cheek again this morning. I also noticed I was no longer having a stomachache though. But the sensation still was similar to the sour-ish type feeling in your cheek when you are about to throw up except I wasn't feel sick at all.

The more I came to think about it and observe the feeling, it almost started to feel like a sensation of slight numbness. The more I continued to search online I found out it could be ms or even stroke but I doubt I had a stroke. The more I started to pinch my cheeks and feel if they were numb my face began to get a constant tingle and from then on easier this morning my face has been slightly tingly and it hasn't let up yet. I was wondering if this all goes in line with onset of multiple sclerosis? It's making me extraordinarily anxious and I feel like the tingling won't stop, and my face feels like it's sagging but when I look in the mirror or smile it's not at all. I'm not having a panic attack of any sort but I'm constantly very anxious about possibly having ms.
