Tingling sensation, numbness in lips on standing up, bending over. Due to cardiac problems?

When I stand up after sitting for a while, or bend over (like to tie my shoes) after a few moments my lips begin to tingle- like you feel when say your hand is falling asleep . Could this be an indicator of cardiac issues? I am a 32 year old woman, cardiac issues on my mothers side and now my father. I am significantly overwieght, but trying to get healthy. Thanks.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Problem of the heart seems less likely.

Postural hypotension is a good possibility.

Occasionally other causes of delay or reduced blood supply to the brain – like neck vessels, spondylosis, venous pooling in legs and so on – may be responsible.
Neurological evaluation and investigation is more likely to help

Because of family history, it is wise to get yourselves checked for risk factors for heart.
You are young and primary prevention is possible.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
