Have face numbness. Had renal transplant done and lupus. Taking mycophenolate mofetil and prograf. Is this a side effect?

I am a renal transplant patient. I also have lupus. I am taking 250 mg. of mycophenolate mofetil twice a day and 4 ng of prograf twice a day. I have been on this medication for 11 years. For the past three days I have noticed that an hour or two after I take cellcept my left side of my face goes numb and the left side of my tongue gets thicker. Is this a new side effect of mycophenolate mofetil. This is beginning to scare me.
