In brief: Very curious

Typical food allergies are not associated with numbness.
Ingestion of aged cheeses can lead to headache. Alcohol can cause flushing. If avoidance of these trigger foods results in no further numbness, then that suggests a correlation. However, other conditions that cause numbness should be sought if it persists.
