Hello, i am teen, but i decided to post my question in this section of the board since u guys might have more experience. For a few days different parts of my body go numb. I can move the muscles, i just cant feel anything, right now i cant feel my legs from the ankles to the knees. I can still flex my calves, but if i scratch my leg or pull on the hair i feel nothing. Today it happened to my face also from the eyes below, i could still talk but if touched my chin i feel nothing or my cheeks, i even rubbed my face with snow and i didnt feel the cold. Do you think this might be something serious

I'd recommend seeing a doctor. Tomorrow sounds like a good time to make an appointment. Read this:

Not that it should be necessary, but if you need a third opinion, here's one: see a doctor ASAP!

Yep - in a heart beat ---- SEE A DOCTOR before any more workouts.

Another vote for seeing a doctor. This isn't something you want to try to heal yourself or ask for advice over the internet from schmucks like us!
