I have a numb area near the top of the right side of my head. No pain, no injury, just occurred one day and has to date lasted a week. Does anyone have a clue or suggestion?

mp123, I have the same symptoms. It is numb to the touch, but is normal otherwise. It occurred after I flew a 10+ hour flight where I was most likely putting pressure on that side of my head when I was trying to sleep. How long before the numbness went away for you?

Thanks!
