Dear patient,

Thanks for your query. One of the diagnosis that could be considered is that of an atypical migraine given unilateral location and associated numbness; other potential diagnosis would be a cluster headache. Both conditions are benign and can respond to medications such as antiinflammatories, sumatriptan and muscle relaxants.

Hope that helps, yours truly,
