Numbness on one half of the face and arm accompanied with blurred vision could be the symptoms of brain stroke. As you suspect, it could be a minor stroke, also referred to as transient ischemic attack. You need to consult a neurologist to determine the risk factors for stroke (in addition to high blood pressure, if any). Also, you may require to start antiplatelet drug (such as aspirin) and statins to reduce the future risk of stroke.
