High blood pressure, numb left big toe, sore knee, and right jaw soreness

For a couple weeks, the tip of my left big toe has mostly felt asleep/numb. At times, the tips of some of my left-hand fingers have felt the same. My knee started feeling sore/tingly in the past couple of days. My lower right jaw has been sore for a couple weeks as well.

My blood pressure has been high for a few years. It usually reads around 130/80 when I am taking medication and supplements. The past few days, it regularly reads between 140-160/80-90. My pulse is usually between 65 and 75.

I am on Diovan (200 mg daily) and take magnesium, vitamin D, fish oil, flax seed oil, and garlic supplements.

I smoke about five cigarettes a month. I usually get drunk one night a week and have maybe a drink or two during the rest of the week. I started drinking red wine nightly and my blood pressure has gone up.

I live in New York, and it has been a little cold lately. I work sitting at a desk for eight or so hours a day. Exercise little, but I do walk 15 minutes twice a day to work and back.

Any thoughts?
