First of all I work out at sea on a ship and cannot get to a DR. right now so please give me your thoughts on my symptoms.

Three mornings ago I woke up and felt ok but I had an aggravating little pain that would come and go behind my left ear,a little headache, and then like a stiff neck aggravating pain,but nothing serious.I just traveled for 10 hrs on a plane and thought it could have been from jet lag maybe?
The next morning I wake up and feel fine,eat my breakfast and then that morning start feeling numbness around my mouth,and left side of my face some.I still have some control of my mouth and face,but not total!Like if I were to spit it would have to come out of the side of my mouth because I could not control it.
This is day three and I have still not regained all control of how my face reacts and my mouth,lips feel.I also woke up this morning with a little headache and bad sinuses on my left side of my face and occassionaly watering from this.
I have had no numbness,or loss of feeling or function of any other body parts.My Safety Tech thinks this could be related to my sinuses.I am worried that I suffered a light stroke!
I am only 35 and hope that is not so!

The only thing I have done differently lately is everyday I take vitamins(centrum performance,B-12,C,and Gingko Gibloa and the other day I went to a Vitamin C & E mixture instead of just a Vitamin C.

Please give me your thoughts on what is wrong with me?
