Hi M K Misra,

Welcome to Health Care Magic.

The numbness may be due to diabetic neuropathy also. It is good if you can control your blood sugar levels in control and regularly check your BP as well. Follow diabetic diet and exercise regularly. You can also take some nutritional supplements. Ecosprin 150mg is safe to continue. You can also add fruits like apple, orange, musambi and papaya for your diet. Avoid carrot and beetroot along with potato.

Dear Mr Mishra
welcome to health care magic
your symptoms of thr right side arm and then whole body which resolved spontaneously in some time sounds like a TIA. this means that the blood circulation to the part of brain controlling that part of body was reduced for some time due to temporary blockage.
with diabetes, your age you stand at a risk for such blockages. it would be helpful to know whether you also have problems with your blood pressure ,or had your heart status examined at any point. as these are additional risk factors.
your diabetes control though not the best is reasonably good
I would suggest you to have a detailed evaluation to see for risk factors for such blockages to prevent a major problem
as for now ASPIRIN 150 mg is a good and safe option
good day
