hello reader,
welcome to HCM...
as u have mentioned about ur prob.. its not a mini stroke.. u might be having cervical spondylosis. get X-ray of cervical done and consult an orthopaedic doctor for proper diagnosis..there are chances for spinal nerve compression which causes numbness in hand..

Hi,thanks for query.Dear you have not mentioned you age.There could be lot many reasons for having headache.It could range from some rise in blood pressure or sinus infection.Numbness may or may not be related.To avoid confusion at least get your blood pressure measured and talk to your doctor.
wishing you good health.
