Shooting pain on the right side of head, face feels numb. Is this stress related ?

I have a shooting pain on the right side of my head. It is very intense but only last for a about 1 to 2 sec. This has happened in the past and my blood pressure was high, but that isn t the case now. I also thought it was from lack of sleep, but last night I got 9 hours of sleep and I am still having these pains. It is starting to make my face feel numb. Could this be stress related?

Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

Shooting pain right side of the head above ear region might usually be due to high blood pressure, which you are ruling out. Checked your blood pressure readings current?

Stress related pains usually subside when we get enough sleep and rest.
Aware of any injury in that part?
Aware of any happenings with which flu symptoms might ensue?
Any acidity symptoms?
Anyway, it will be better to consult a general physician for expert advice.
Get well soon.
