A portion of my left side of my head feels numb. Its in the area where my left temporal lobe is. Its usually intervals of every 4 hours. Why?

In brief: Whoa, boy

Forget about your left temporal lobe.
The brain feels nothing except sensations from other parts of the body. This is all about outside your skull. You forgot to mention how long this has been happening, how long it lasts, & what "numb" means: Less feeling, tingling, etc. That still won't be enough. You'll have to leave your computer & see a nonvirtual doctor to find out why.
