Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Stress does not cause swelling. You need to check again.

The diastolic pressure of 90 is not normal / some allow it as upper limit. It is preferable to bring it down to 80 or less. Check it on a few more occasions.

You are overweight and in need to reduce.

It may be wiser to consult a Neurologist / have an MRI of the brain, if symptoms continue.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
