Blood pressure drop: The circulation to the left side of your head dropped. Most likely due to a drop in blood pressure. Dehydration, anemia, or some people just people just have low blood pressure.

Not sure: If not worsening probably no big deal. But if worsening in any way, should get checked by pcp.
