Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Yes tachycardia can cause compromised blood flow to the brain and the extremities.
This can result in slurred speech, tingling of extremities and cold feeling.
Flecainide also can cause these symptoms as side effects.
Dizziness is very common.
Other neurological symptoms like tingling, cold sensation, slurred speech also reported with flecainide.
You should discuss with your doctor.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
