Hello,

After going through your medical query I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that palpitations and numbness can be there because of high blood sugar levels or heart disease.

It's recommended for you to get an ECG, echocardiography and F/PPBS done and consult a physician personally for proper physical evaluation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Bhanu Partap, Cardiologist
