Brief Answer: Multivitamins. routine & Cardiovascular evaluation Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX Thanks for using XXXXXXX I went through the query and understood your concern. Numbness at the tip of tongue and chin are more commonly due to deficiency of vitamins, allergic responce or due to temporary variation of local blood supply or glucose level. These causes will improve in time becouse of our body responce and the numbness will disappear. If it is severe, more often and disturbing daily activities then this needs to be evaluated further for the cause. If it is occassional then you can use multivitamin tablets and maintain blood sugar levels and blood pressure. Have plenty of fruits, green leafy vegitables and fluids. Never skip your medications for blood pressure and adhere to doctor's advice. Since you have the history of high blood pressure, I advice you to get done ECG, lipid profile and carotid dopler once to check the cardio vascular status and get examined by your doctor once (Routine general physical examination). If any abnormality is find then we can treat the problem accordingly. These investigations are required to rule out any other cardiovascular cause that may lead to the symptoms you have mentioned. Hope these information helps you. Feel free to ask if any related query and I will be happy to answer you. Regards
