High BP, imbalanced walk, end up hitting the door or wall on taking a step forward, no change in medications. Worrisome?

SINCE THIS MORNING I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO WALK STRAIGHT. I AM NOT TAKING ANY NEW MEDICATIONS AND WHEN I TAKE A STEP FORWARD I LEAN IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION AND USUALLY END UP HITTING A DOOR OR A WALL. I FEEL REALLY SHAKEY AND MY BLOOD PRESSURE IS HIGHER THAN NORMAL. I AM ONLY TAKING 1 MEDICATION AND IT HAS BEEN THE SAME MED AND DOSAGE FOR OVER A YEAR. IS THIS SOMETHING TO WORRY ABOUT?

Cardiologist 's  Response
Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

     You have to be examined by a Neurologist. / MRI may be needed. MRA (MRI angiography) shows blood vessels and is generally done at the same sitting... Reduced blood supply to the brain (brain stem, cerebellum) needs to be investigated...

     If there are no clues, you have to be investigated by a Cardiologist! EKG / HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring – for arrhythmia) / ECHOcardiogram (for clot) / LABORATORY work-up – may all be necessary for further assessment and assistance.
     
Take care     
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
