I have had a bad throbbing stabbing pain in the back of my head, which came along with aching tension and numbness on one side of face still happening?

In brief: Neurologist

I recommend an examination by a neurologist in view of the associated facial numbness.
Simple occipital neuralgia, which isn't serious, wouldn't have associated facial numbness.
