Brief Answer:
What medications are you on?

Detailed Answer:

Your numbers are not terribly in need of an immediate intervention from your doctor. The plan is to take your medications as recommended and monitor the numbers. However, I will like to know what drugs you are on and the various dosages. Also, take another blood pressure reading and report with the next follow up message.

The tingle and numbness are not caused by the increased blood pressure. The values have not reached the level requiring that often qualify as hypertensive urgency in which such numbers call for immediate intervention.

I hope to hear back from you. I hope this responses also lessens your worries as that alone would be helpful in addressing your increased blood pressure.
