i have had the following symptoms for the past couple of months, tingling/numbness in the face/back of head, dizziness, tiredness, trouble remembering things, loss of concentration, and neck pains. i have recently been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, high blood pressure, and have been battling anxiety for the past 3-4 years. do you know what could be going on?

  • If you have A-fib and hypertension you are at an increased risk for stroke. Your symptoms sound like TIA's (transient ischemic attacks). Have you been evaluated for this?
