Feeling pressure in the head, stabbing pain in the temple, numbness in the neck and arm. Causes?

I have a weird sensation in my head most of the time. It feels like a perssure in the right side of my head, sometimes it feels like a stabbing pain in my right eye or temple, but it usually only lasts a second or 2. One night i had a weird stabbing headache in my right eye that lasted for over 5 minutes tho. I also have some numbness and stiffness in my neck and arm ( also on right side). Sometimes i also feel discomfort in my right eye, like something was in my eye. It s making me stressfull and worried as hell. I m 18 and male.

dear ivarkup, hello.
Common causes of headache on single side are :-
- Migraine
- Cluster headache
- Cervical spondylosis resulting in pain radiation towards the effected side.
In your case, it seems that you are suffering from cluster headache as it is unilateral, involves eye region and neck stiffness can be present after the attack.
Smoking can trigger the attack.
You should consult a Neurophysician for medication after getting yourself examined.
