With a history of high blood pressure, I am concerned that the cause of the numbness in your mouth/throat and the inability to feel touch on your body might be from a stroke. If you haven't seen your doctor about this, you really should. These kinds of symptoms are alarming.

I'm here to continue discussing this if you like.
