Hi there,


I am Mysticdoc, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

These symptoms can be due to the stroke.

High BP is a risk factor for stroke.

The tingling sensation can be due to the nerve related symptoms.

mysticdoc :

Diabetes, thyroid disorder, vitamin b12 deficiency can cause these symptoms as well.

mysticdoc :

It is better to go to the ER if these symptoms are worsening.

mysticdoc :

A neurologist should be consulted soon otherwise.

Customer:

HIS BP is 129/60 but HR is too low at 48....Tingling is better. DO you think it's a stroke and is that HR too low?Thanks!

mysticdoc :

the HR is little low.

mysticdoc :

This can be TIA or transient ischemic stroke.

mysticdoc :

Still, this should be checked out by a neurologist at least
