Thanks for your query to HealthcareMagic.

Based on your description, it appears that when you tend to get angry, you hyperventilate (increase in the number of breaths per minute with your breaths becoming short and quick) . Your feeling of strong tingly numbness throughout the body could possibly be due to hyperventilation. Some of the other common symptoms which people usually report with this are- dryness of mouth, tremors of hand, sweating in the palm and/forehead, palpitation,and giddiness.

If you come to an understanding that you do tend to hyperventilate when angry, do the following-

- Relaxation and breathing exercises. If you are into Yoga, Sawashana and Anulom-Vilom can be handy.

- Anger management can be done through meditation. It appears that you might be into meditation as you seem to suppress your anger more than other people.

Hope this information will be of some help.

As rightly suggested by Dr. Amardeep, you need to take care to manage your anger. You could be at a risk of suffering a stroke from haemorrhage in case you are suffering from hypertension. Relax and keep calm. Problems are solved better peacefully than aggresively. You can go for a stress test and do a cardiac profile also to be aware of your health status.
