The symptoms you describe can be the signs of a stroke or even a heart attack.
Symptoms of a stroke and heart attack
However, they can also be signs of a nerve or muscle damage. The only way to know for sure is to make and appointment with your physician. If you suspect that you are having a stroke or a heart attack, I encourage you to go to the emergency room immediately.
Best of luck,
