I smoke. Last night found I couldn't inhale cigarette

Customer Question
I smoke. Last night...

I smoke. Last night found I couldn't inhale cigarette normally. This continues, and today noticed right side of smile won't go up and difficulty shutting right eye. Now right eye is leaking years pretty much continuously. Have been medicated for high blood pressure for more than 20 years. Wear glasses, believe that in past several weeks vision has been gettting worse.

Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Is there a history of high blood pressure in your family?

Not significant history of blood pressure in family. Basic heart and lung listening & diabetes test a couple months ago. Last full checkup years ago. Grandfather died of massive stroke, but he worked in lead paint all his life.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I'm 61. About 15-20 pounds overweight. No drugs since 1980s. No alcohol for more than a year. A woman I work with got Bell's Palsy several months ago & has since recovered, but it can't possibly be contagious. I don't think. ; )
