Get seen today.: Call your doc or get seen today. If you are taking a new medicine this may be the problem or it could be something else. You don't want it to get worse, so if you cannot reach your doc, go to the ER.

ER now!: I am very concerned with this sudden trouble moving your tongue! This could be a stroke and possibly related to the cardiomegaly and hypertension. Proceed to your closest Emergency Room at once! Do not delay!
