Right upper lip droop and speech issues

Hello, I have noticed for the past week that the right side of my upper lip droops slightly and my speech isn't always clear.  I went to the ER yesterday, where they did MRI and CT, which didn't find anything.  I am scared that it is something else more serious.  I can't function well.  I have a Neurology appointment next month but I am afraid.  Any advice is welcome!  Thanks!
