Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir

After going through the medical details provided by you I would like to tell you that from the symptoms which you have mentioned here does not point towards anything serious and that tingling sensation is a normal feeling while measuring blood pressure. It is due to rush of blood when cuff pressure is released.

Your Bp is also well within normal range As recommended.

However as you have entered your 40s so it's advisable to get one basic cardiac health check up done once along with lipid profile. ECG, Echocardiography and TMT will complete the health checkup.

I hope this information will answer your query.

Kind Regards
