For four days i've woken up with sharp pain and numbness on the back right side of my head.  One day i even had numbness on one of my left fingers?

Get checked: The back of the head on the right and the left hand are not innervated by the same nerve, so it is unlikely that you have a pinched nerve. You should see a neurologist. Migraines can occasionally cause sensory symptoms such as hand numbness. ...Read more
