In brief: Numbness

Numbness is worrisome, especially unilateral (one sided) head numbness.
You could be dealing with a nerve injury, spinal cord injury, herpes zoster, stroke, muscle tension, and even seizures. Honestly this type of problem requires an urgent medical evaluation. If you have not done so already seek medical attention right away.
