Brief Answer: Monitor BP consult cardiologist&Neurologist.... Detailed Answer: Hi i read your query very carefully. Based on your medical data and your complaints i would like to suggest to measure your blood pressure and to consult a cardiologist. Also cardiac ECHO and 24 hour BP monitoring should be done. Also i recommend to consult a neurologist for further neurological examinations (head CT scan). Hope it was of help! Feel free to ask me other questions you might have! Dr.Benard
