Thanks for posting your query.
Facial numbness, tingling on tongue and sore head can be due to viral infection (herpese zoster) or facial palsy. It may be triggered by any inflammation or irritation of nerves or any damage by trauma. These condition are usually treated with corticosteroid and antiviral drugs i.e acyclovir.
These condition may resolve by their own, you should take rest and avoid stress.
Contact your doctor for further management.
Hope it helps.
