Hello dear,

Since you have mentioned in your post that your fiancee has Hypertension, so the symptoms can be attributed to Hypertensive neuropathy.
Symptomatic improvement will can be obtained with nervigenic agents like Vit B6, Vit B12 & Folic acid.
Also anti hypertensive medications, diet & lifestyle modifications need to be done to keep the blood pressure within normal range.
So, kindly consult your Physician & get a complete clinical examination done including nerve conduction studies.
Till then, make sure he maintains adequate hydration & nutrition status and avoids stress.
Take care.
