You need to go to the emergency room right away, call 911. Neck stiffness is often the first sign of meningitis, a deadly and fast moving virus.

The most serious cause of numbness and headache could be related to a stroke. Less serious causes can be related to Bell's Palsy, Trigeminal Neuralgia, or possibly even meningitis. All of these conditions can be serious and need to be evaluated by a doctor promptly.

This could be due to a number of different things, including TIA, stroke symptoms, herniated disc, cervical spinal stenosis, allergic reaction, tension headache, among other things. The most serious of these would be the stroke, however unless you have a complete work up, it is diffcult to say what is exactly causing your symptoms.

This could absolutely be a mini stroke. You should go to the emergency room immediately. You have the signs and it could get worse.

This could be a sign of whiplash, if you have been in a car wreck recently. It can also be a sign of a stroke. That risk goes higher with age, high blood pressure, prior heart attacks, and family history. If these symptoms have had a sudden onset and you have not had an accident, see a doctor immediately.

This is a sympton that may lead to Bell's palsy, or a partial paralysis of a certain region of the body. If this persists for too long or occur at many times, then you should check a doctor specializing the nervous system of our body.

Well did you do any dental work lately. Usually if one side of your face is numb, there is an underlying cause. Could be a degeneration of the nerves on your face. You need to go to the doctor immediately.
