Your symptoms are concerning for something serious that should be evaluated in the emergency room right away. The fact that your face feels numb and that your eyes are not focusing suggests that you might have nervous system involvement of this infection and this needs to be urgently evaluate to modify treatment.

Please get medical attention right away and please let me know if you have any questions.
