Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
We are here to help you.
You might be having Migraine but we should always rule out Stroke (Transient Ischemic Attack, TIA) in such case as you had numbing of one side of the body, that too transient. TIA are the warning signs of impending stroke. You should get an evaluation done. Your doctor would examine you and if feels it was TIA episode will post your for:
1. MRI Brain
2. Doppler of carotid vessels.
Share my opinion with your doctor.
I hope it helps.
