Am I having a stroke?

Yesterday I had bad frontal headache. Along with this my left eye had the feeling of a slight eye allergy/puffiness. Today the headache is mostly gone except for a little on my left. However the eye situation is a little worse. There's a tad bit of a tingle/numbness from left eye, through my left cheek bone, down to my left side jaw. Could this be signs of some kind of stroke? Or is it more the signs of some allergy?

If you fear or suspect stroke in any way, please immediately seek emergency care.  Some time has passed so we hope you are well.  Here is an article that discusses the warning signs of stroke: https://www.medicinenet.com/11_signs_and_symptoms_of_stroke/article.htm

F: face dropping
A. arm weakness
S. speech difficulty
T. Time to call 911

That's an easy way to remember when to get help.  Time is of the essence with stroke.  Please report back if you were able to see a doctor.  Be well.
