Pain in head

I have a persistant dull ache/pain feeling (just enough to know that something is there) on the left front side of my head, sometimes i get a sharp shooting pain for a couple of seconds on the right side then it dissapears. Over the past few days i've also felt like the left side of my head is "numb" almost like i cant feel it. I have an appointment for a GP soon. Can anyone shed any light on what could be causing these symptoms?

I am sorry for the delay in reply. I am not sure how I missed the post. I apologize.

Headache followed by numbness and loss of balance and typing error could be due to migraine, tumors of the brain, transient ischemic attacks (where temporarily blood supply to brain is stopped, which may later lead to stroke), tension headache, chronic sinusitis affecting internal ear pressure too etc. It could also be due to

However it is difficult to diagnose without examining. So please consult your doctor.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else. Please keep me posted.
