Brief Answer:
Migraines or metabolic disorder, not to be worried too much

Detailed Answer:
Hi
thank you for trusting HCM
I read you query and understand your concern

In my opinion, as it has been some years I treat headache and numbness , you are probably suffering from a primary headache.
Don't worry too much there is remedy .

If you were one of my patient I would recommend you to further be examined, to exclude some metabolic disorder which can cause your symptoms.

The most probably diagnosis are migraine attacks or any metabolic disorder.
Routine blood test will help to exclude metabolic disorder such as liver or kidney dysfunction
If your test result are normal the next step is to consult a neurologist

He will confirm the diagnosis and start treatment.

You will be fine some days after starting treatment.

Hope I have been of help
Wish you good health and fast recovery
Please feel free to ask for further information or doubts
