Thanks for writing to us.
1. Definitely you have high blood pressure
and it needs to be taken care for. It takes some time (typically 1-2 weeks) for different first line drugs to achieve their full effect. Hence it will take some more time for your BP to be optimally controlled. If you get more bothersome complaints or a BP more than 160/100 mm-Hg you should see your doctors earlier.
2. A tingling sensation
, if it is present for last several months (with your BP being normal) should be seen as an isolated event (not related to High BP
). However if you are unaware of your BP at those times, a correlation may exist. This requires an examination to look for other signs of neurological deficit/irritation/compression and if none is present it may be relatively benign. A sudden increase in BP may also be associated with such neurological phenomenons. Please discuss with your GP ans subsequently to a neurologist
, if he suggests so.
Feel free to discuss further.
