Hello.

Thanks for your query.

Are you getting any regular treatment for your hypertension right now?

The slight pain in your chest can be due to a heart problem that can be ruled out by an ECG or it might be an associated problem along with indigestion.
The problem of bloating can be solved by avoiding spicy and oily food, having frequent small meals and with regular bowel movements.

Tingling and fingers and numb left hand can be caused by cervical spondylosis for which you stop using a pillow and start taking supplements of Methylcobalamin.
An orthopaedician can help you further if the problem is quite severe.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available if you have any further queries.

Regards
