Dizziness, numbness and tingling in arm, abdominal bloating. Taking Warfarin for pulmonary embolism. What to do?

I have been lethargic for about a week and a half. I feel dizzy periodically throughout the day and have experienced numbness and tingling in my left arm, however it only lasts for a minute or two and then goes away. I have abdominal bloating and moderate discomfort. I thought I was experiencing a stomach flu because I have also been nauseated with a very limited appetite. (I didn't eat anything for three days and I am forcing myself to eat foods from the BRAT diet) I take Warafin for Factor 5 deficiency ( I have had approx. 5-7 blood clots and 1 pulmonary embolism over the last eight years) Free from any episodes for over a year. Concerned with my symptoms, a girlfriend sent me a link on internal stomach bleeding. I do seem to have quite a few of the symptoms but I don't want to jump the gun and go to the emergency department. Do you think I could wait and book an appt. with my GP or should I be proactive? I also am still awake at almost 4:00 a. m. with moderate stomachs pain.

Neurologist 's  Response
If your dizziness and numbness is intermittent in the left arm and you have periods of normalcy in between,then we need to do an EEG to rule out any minor seizure like phenomena.if the EEG shows abnormality then we would need a brain imaging to be done.
You could meet a gastroenterologist for your stomach bloating.Plz meet a neurologist at your place for a clinical examination and further advice.
