base of head, headache

I've been having a different kind of headache for the last 3 weeks--almost constant--base of head/neck area-mostly left side, and the pain "runs a path" up to behind my left eye...otc ibuprofen usually keeps pain manageable (4-6/10)..last night went to bed w/ ibuprofen & woke up a couple of hours later with a real nasty pain behind my left eye, also at the left side base of head/neck...and my left arm was weird-tingly,numb. I could still move it, but it felt like it had "fallen asleep". The arm tingling,"numbness" lasted for a few hours but the headache just doesn't want to quit. Any ideas? New kind of migraine or tension headache? Pinched nerve in my neck? No trauma to head or neck that I know of...the pain is just getting frustrating. thanks
