Rare and random occurring numbness and dizziness on top of head

It only occurs whenever I'm straining, like throwing a baseball or turning around quickly, one side of the top of my head feels numb and I feel mild dizziness for just a few minuites, and after that I feel completley normal.

It occurs around once a month, it's random and rare. I don't drink and I rarely take any medicine.

Does anyone know these strains are?

Thank you so much, -bill

Has your doctor checked your neck and shoulder (throwing arm side)? Does it occur when you turn your head, such as to look over the backseat when backing up a car?
