When I have a panic attack I feel like my face goes numb. It makes my panic worse.

So it's all leading to anxiety I've had a stressful week and another one ahead of me u think that's why I feel that way because it's not like I have no feeling there when I scratch my face or something I feel it it's just the sensation

Yep this can be migraine related. I used to get this a lot. You can get it with or without a headache , after stress or eating foods which you might be sensitive too etc. mine used to come on immediately after drinking coffee amongst other things.  Good luck
