I will give you an initial answer or ask you a question, but be sure to use reply to expert to communicate with me as needed.

These are hypertensive urgency symptoms, and can represent a pending stroke.

Or other problems such as mini strokes that are multiple.

Go to the ER if these symptoms are still going on.

Get an exam and MRI of the brain and slowly get your BP down.

A new floater can indicated a retinal problem.

This is not something to wait on.
