Is it nerves around my head, that's giving me my problem?

I was wondering if someone else has the same problem I do, or similar. Approximately 10 years ago, I was sitting in my recliner, with my head against the back of my chair, when suddenly my head around both sides starting to tingle. I sat there for maybe 10 to 15 seconds waiting to see if it was going to subside. When I decided to sit up and take the pressure off of the back of my head, the tingling quit, but ever since I've had this feeling of numbness around the back and sides of my head. I don't notice it as much, as I do when I lay my head down to sleep. I also feel a little numbness just off the corner of my right eye. I have a hard time getting my head in a place where I'm comfortable enough to go to sleep. My recliner is soft where my head makes contact, so I don't know what took place. I've had an MRI took of my head, The Neurologist said that the problem didn't show up on the MRI. I just figured, well it's something I may have to live with. I believe this problem I have has got a little worse in the last couple of years. If anyone can tell me what my problem is. Is it nerve damage or blood vessel problem or what? I would definitely appreciate it. Thanks for reading my story.
