Thanks for the query
A sudden onset of facial numbness needs neurological evaluation. This could be related to either minor problems like even migraine variant or even desalinating disorder. You need a detailed neurological examination to see if there are other neurological signs or not. This will help us guide you regarding the requirement on a brain scan. The management will depends upon the the cause identified.
Hope this helps
