In brief: Numbness

Right sided numbness can signify a lesion like a growth on the left side of your brain(cerebral cortex).
A demyelinating process like multiple sclerosis is less likely as scattered areas of numbness would be more apt to occur with that disorder. Nevertheless you should consult a neurologist and the appropriate examination and testing will be done in order to make a diagnosis.
