If you would have presented to me as an outpatient,I would have told you that the most common causes of the symptoms you are having(tingling and numbness on one side of the head,occasional eye twitching,occasional difficulty in remembering things) are stress and anxiety.Same appears to be the reason in your case as there is no localising value of your symptoms.

Meanwhile,please start doing some mental relaxation exercises/yoga/meditation on regular basis, strictly.I am sure this is going to improve your symptoms.Please be in follow-up and let me know about the clinical developments.
