Hi there. Numbness around the mouth is a classic sign of anxiety or a panic attack, which can also result in high blood pressure. So while they may be associated with each other, they are not caused by each other.
The worrisome signs and symptoms of high blood pressure include chest pain, palpitations, shortness of breath, severe headache or stroke symptoms (one sided weakness or numbness, problems with vision, balance, speech or swallowing, etc).
