Numbness/tingle sensation in face

I am worried April 2010 I got this strang sensation by my right temple and a little above into my head.  It was annoying not really any pain was almost numb feeling but i still had control of all movement and kinda felt like a tingle and it would come and go through out the day. I went to the Dr they said it was probably nothing. So after I went to the Dr a few weeks passed and I didnt feel it anymore I figured good it was probably stress that I didnt know I had or it was sinus issues not that i thought i had any sinus problems.  So it did come back in the summer probably end of July first of August then went away again now it is Oct 2010 still and I am getting it again right temple sometimes into my cheek have felt it in my nose and also my lips but 98% of the time it is right temple and upper part of cheek bone.  I am having an MRI done tomorrow soooo scared !! seems the Dr wants me to get this I think it must be a tumor or they think it is.  I am sooo worried please let me know what you think!! Do you think i have a tumor? I mean if it was something else i would have other symptoms and they wouldnt be doing the MRI.  

Thanks so much for your time and letting me vent
